Field Assignment - too complex to be evaluated

I'm having difficulty using the field assignment below as an if/then statement.  Is there another way to state it?
Entity: IIf(Left([Invoice]![Cost Center],1)=0,"100",IIf(Left([Invoice]![Cost Center],2)=30,"102",IIf([Invoice]![Cost Center] Like "1N*","313",IIf(Left([Invoice]![Cost Center],3)>135 And Left([Invoice]![Cost Center],3)<137,"325","300"))))

The output returns: "This expression is typed incorrectly, or it is too complex to be evaluated.  For example, a numeric expression may contain too many complicated elements.  Try simplifying the expression by assigning parts of the expression to variables."

first try to find where the error is coming from, use a simple IIf expression and continue building it.

Entity: IIf(Left([Invoice]![Cost Center],1)=0,"100","MORE")

if you don't get an error on that one, expand it like this


Entity: IIf(Left([Invoice]![Cost Center],1)=0,"100",IIf(Left([Invoice]![Cost Center],2)=30,"102","MORE"))

I got it.  The answer is:

Entity: IIf([Invoice]![Cost Center] Between "135*" And "137*","325",IIf([Invoice]![Cost Center] Like "0*","100",IIf([Invoice]![Cost Center] Like "30*","102",IIf([Invoice]![Cost Center] Like "1N*","313","300"))))

Give me the points and please let's put this issue to rest.  Thanks for looking.  Sorry to bother anyone.
