Hello Experts
I am trying to write the below in the formula field but looks like its not accepting all the below as one string may be due to the IF statement? Please can someone advice how can I go about fix this?

Thanks

NumberVar d := CDbl({Lde.Day});
StringVar s := "This deed of entitlement is  made the ";
s := s & " " ;
If d >= 4 And d <= 20 Then
  s := s & " " &   ToText(d, 0, "") & "th" ;
Else If d = 1 Then
    s := s & " " &  "1st";
Else If d = 2 then
   s := s & " " &   "2nd";
Else If d = 3 then
    s := s & " " &  "3rd";
Else If d >= 24 and d <= 30 Then
     s := s & " " & ToText(d, 0, "") & "th";
Else If d = 21 Then
     s := s & " " & "21st";
Else If d = 22 Then
     s := s & " " & "22nd";
Else If d = 23 Then
     s := s & " " & "23rd";
Else If d = 31 Then
     s := s & " " & "31st";
       
s := s & " day of " & MonthName(CDbl({Laird.Month}));

s := s  & " in the year " & {Lde.Year};

s;

This deed of entitlement is  made the                        day of                           in the year

Try adding WhilePrintingRecords; as the first line of the formula.

You need to remove the ";" before each Else.  A ";" is put at the end of a statement, and your if-else-if-else is one statement.  You need a ";" before the first If, and at the end of the last If (after "31st").

 FWIW, I would use Select-Case instead of the if-else-if-else.  I just find that easier to follow when you have multiple tests like this.  But that's just a personal preference.

Good catch James.  I didn't notice them and since he seemed to indicate the formula was working (not reporting an error), I didn't look too closely at the code since it seemed to be correct for what he wanted.

As written it should produce an error when saved.
