Have a look here, you need the IIF function by the sounds of things. MS Access doesnt support standard IF or CASE statements, unlike most other databases packages:

Ah, sorry hadn't realized you are using Access; use an IIF statement instead:

iff ( loan amount >30000, "10", iff(loan amount >15,000 and <29,000, "6", iff(loan amount >10,000 and <14,99, "3")))
