    The IF function has 3 parts.
    eg: IF(MOD(Buildings::BldgID;2)=0;1;0)

    However you probably don't need it as you could just use:
    which will result in true or false (1 or 0)

    Peter has the answer. An IF statement takes the following form:

    If ( test ; result 1 ; result 2 )

    Though it's not relevant here, the Case() function is similar to If() but lets you have multiple tests each with it's own result.
