"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.

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:
MOD(Buildings::BldgID;2)=0
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.
