I have developed a report that has multiple problem codes that I want to translate into a phrase for a customer to understand what took place.  I wrote the forumula in Basic Syntax but keep getting the error message a Statement is required here after the Then.  Here is my formula:

If {SP_WO_OpenCLose_VW.wd_p_id} ="PEA" Then "Electronics-Not Printing"
Else if {SP_WO_OpenCLose_VW.wd_p_id} ="PEB" Then "No Print Go"
Else if {SP_WO_OpenCLose_VW.wd_p_id} ="PEC" Then "No Paper"
Else if {SP_WO_OpenCLose_VW.wd_p_id} ="PED" Then "No Power"
Else if {SP_WO_OpenCLose_VW.wd_p_id} ="PEE" Then "Phasing Error"
Else if {SP_WO_OpenCLose_VW.wd_p_id} ="PEF" Then "No Data Entry"
Else if {SP_WO_OpenCLose_VW.wd_p_id} ="PEG" Then "Electronics Overheating"
Else if {SP_WO_OpenCLose_VW.wd_p_id} ="PEJ" Then "In Reset"
Else if {SP_WO_OpenCLose_VW.wd_p_id} ="PEQ" Then "Communication Error"
Else if {SP_WO_OpenCLose_VW.wd_p_id} ="PMS" Then "Preventative Maintenance"
Else if {SP_WO_OpenCLose_VW.wd_p_id} ="PEO" Then "Boot Startup Failure"
Else "No Error Captured"
End If


What am i missing?

2 ways to fix this

1.  Use Crystal syntax and change the Esle If to EsleIf

2 Use Basic syntax and change it to

If {SP_WO_OpenCLose_VW.wd_p_id} ="PEA" Then Formula = "Electronics-Not Printing"
Else if {SP_WO_OpenCLose_VW.wd_p_id} ="PEB" Then Formula = "No Print Go"
Else if {SP_WO_OpenCLose_VW.wd_p_id} ="PEC" Then Formula = "No Paper"
Else if {SP_WO_OpenCLose_VW.wd_p_id} ="PED" Then Formula = "No Power"
Else if {SP_WO_OpenCLose_VW.wd_p_id} ="PEE" Then Formula = "Phasing Error"
Else if {SP_WO_OpenCLose_VW.wd_p_id} ="PEF" Then Formula = "No Data Entry"
Else if {SP_WO_OpenCLose_VW.wd_p_id} ="PEG" Then Formula = "Electronics Overheating"
Else if {SP_WO_OpenCLose_VW.wd_p_id} ="PEJ" Then Formula = "In Reset"
Else if {SP_WO_OpenCLose_VW.wd_p_id} ="PEQ" Then Formula = "Communication Error"
Else if {SP_WO_OpenCLose_VW.wd_p_id} ="PMS" Then Formula = "Preventative Maintenance"
Else if {SP_WO_OpenCLose_VW.wd_p_id} ="PEO" Then Formula = "Boot Startup Failure"
Else Formula = "No Error Captured"
End If

Thanks for that but now everything after the first If statement is highlighted and I get the error message "The remainig text does not appear to be part of the formula."  If checked the statement and made sure that I am in basic syntax.  What am I missing?

Sorry had the 2 backwards.
If {qryHoursWorked.CompanyName} = "123" then
   formula = "123"
Elseif {qryHoursWorked.CompanyName} = "321" then
   formula = "321"
Else
      formula = "432"
End if

Your orignal works in Crystal syntax without the End If

Change the one I gave to use ElseIf

I always use Crystal so when I try the basic I get things backwards.
