IFF expression

Why is only the first part working on this?  This only subtracts 5% from all prices.

Iff([DatePosted]>3/4/2012,[Price]-.05*[Price],[Price]-.03*[Price])

I appreciate your help.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Try this ... with #'s wrapping the date:

Iff([DatePosted] > #3/4 /2012#, [Price] - 0.05 * [Price], [Price] - 0.03 * [Price])

the #'s prompt me for a date.  [DatePosted] is the date, so I should not be getting a prompt.

I had one extra space in the date literal ... try this:

Iff([DatePosted] > #3/4/2012#, [Price] - 0.05 * [Price], [Price] - 0.03 * [Price])

or

Iff([DatePosted] > CDate("3/4/2012"), [Price] - 0.05 * [Price], [Price] - 0.03 * [Price])

Are you using this in a query?

I'm assuming you guys meant  IIF( )   not    IFF( )

;-)

You could also have used:

[Price] * (1-iif([DatePosted] > #3/4/2012#, .05, .03))
