# If statement not return True when it should based on the data

Posted on 2014-03-14

I have a complex IF Statement within VBA

when I step thru the code  the if statement variables should return true but instead treats it as False.  See '>>>>  this happens on the 2nd Pass of a Do Loop Statement, the First Loop the if Statement Returns True

Variable Values:

Record 1
contractNo:  00001634
nfld:              33.40%
nTier6:          30.00%

Record 2
contractNo:  00001634
nfld:              137.52%
nTier6:          28.50%

so the 2nd if should be true but it acts as false an moves to next If statement.

``````
If nfld = Format(0, "Percent") Then
nOvrAmt = 0
BkOvrCalc = nOvrAmt
GoTo cont:
'>>>              ElseIf nfld > nTier6 Then
nOvrAmt = rs.Fields("TotalNetUSExp") * rs1.Fields("T6E").Value
BkOvrCalc = nOvrAmt
GoTo cont:

ElseIf nfld < nTier6 Then
For nTr = 1 To 4
'determine which Tier value to use
nTierNo = "Tier" & nTr
strNextField = "Tier" & nTr + 1
'Determine the % Payout:
strfld = "T" & nTr & "E"
strfldNext = "T" & nTr + 1 & "E"
nfld1 = Format(rs.Fields(nTierNo).Value, "Percent")
nfld2 = Format(rs.Fields(strNextField).Value, "Percent")
Debug.Print "nfld1:" & nfld1
Debug.Print "nfld2:" & nfld2
If nfld > nfld1 Then
nOvrAmt = 0
BkOvrCalc = nOvrAmt
GoTo cont:
ElseIf nfld > nfld1 And nfld < nfld2 = True Then
nOvrAmt = rs.Fields("TotalNetUSExp") * rs1.Fields(strfld).Value
BkOvrCalc = nOvrAmt
GoTo cont:
End If
nTr = nTr + 1
Next nTr
End If

Hi

Which data type have nfld & nTier6 if they are strings it could produce this error

you should convert to numbers before testing them

they are actually a Percent is there a datatype I should use instead of string?

Also note the I am retrieving the actual field Name prior to gettng the actual value.  Does this come in to play with the varialbes note reading the data correctly?

You should completely correct your code not formatting your data to percent it wil  only make thing easier to compare ( then instead of [if nfld = Format(0, "Percent") then], you could use [if nfld = 0 then].

To know which data type you should use for the variables nfld and nTier6,  you have to get them from the access tables design.

EDIT

Percents are only a formatting That's why you use the format function to produce them, by doing this you convert a number into a string if you do not convert them at debug.print you will get 0.30 instead of "30%" and that's right because 0.30 is 30% of 1 and all your calculations will be correct

I changed the nfld, nfld2, etc to Double and we were on the same page I removed the format from the string value of the nfld, etc.

However, some of the values of the fields are numbers to exponential.

How would you recommend handling values like : 7.87772796174584E-02

Hi,

It is just a representation, it is 0.07877... or if you want 7.877%

Ok I am still having issues with Datatype mismatch.  I have played around with various datatypes for the  Percentage(Tier1-6)

I figured out the typemismatch  on closing I have the

set rs = nothing before the rs.close, etc.

However I still not getting the IF statements to return the correct true or false

It gets stuck in a loop and then crashes the mdb.

Ok I really need some help with the entire looping of the proper records.

Atleast I got the Field type working - no more mismatch issues.

Still having issues with the entire code and the order of the loops/if statements - I will post new question.
