Hi there

I am trying to implement a CASE statement in VB with 2 variables.

I have attached a spreadsheet of how i want this to work.

There are basically 2 columns with UoM1 and UoM2.

The code needs to run down each row and check what's in UoM1 and UoM2.

Column E shows the calculations to do when it meets those conditions.

((I know conversions are not correct - this is just an example!))

How do i express this in VB code to run in excel?

Many thanks

you could do something like this:

r = 0.01
UoM1 = "MM"
UoM2 = "M"
select case UoM1 & "-" & UoM2
  case "MM-M"
     r = r * 100
  case "M-M"
     r = r * 1000
   case "EA-EA"
     r =  r
   case "M-MM"
     r = r / 100
end select
