Hi,


I am trying to add my numbers together but nothing is working my logic as always is off.  

specially around the holidays.  

So, I need your help please!!!


<cfoutput query="FiveYearPlan"> 
            <cfset CostPlan = #replace(FiveYearPlan.MajorUpgradeCost,"<","&lt;")#>
            <cfset variables.CostPlanFrom = 0>
			
	<cfif #CostPlan# neq ''>
				<cfswitch expression="#CostPlan#">
 				<cfcase value="&lt;$100K">
                    <cfset variables.CostPlanFrom = variables.CostPlanFrom + 0>
                    0
 				</cfcase>
 				<cfcase value="$100K to $500K">
                	<cfset variables.CostPlanFrom = variables.CostPlanFrom + 100>
                    100
 				</cfcase>
 				<cfcase value="$500K to $1M">
                	<cfset variables.CostPlanFrom = variables.CostPlanFrom + 500>
 					500
 				</cfcase>
 				<cfcase value="$1M to $5M">
                    <cfset variables.CostPlanFrom = variables.CostPlanFrom + 1000000>
 					1000000
 				</cfcase> 
                <cfcase value=">$5M">
                    <cfset variables.CostPlanFrom = variables.CostPlanFrom + 5000000>
 					5000000
 				</cfcase>
                </cfswitch> 
           <cfelse>
           &nbsp;
           </cfif>
</cfoutput>		


<!--- variables.CostPlanFrom is not adding up ---> 
<!--- What am I doing wrong? ---> 

<cfoutput>#variables.CostPlanFrom#</cfoutput>

lol,  especially around the holidays!

I'm thinking that some of your switch cases are not matching.
Let's find out which ones by using the defaultcase...

<cfoutput query="FiveYearPlan"> 
            <cfset CostPlan = replace(FiveYearPlan.MajorUpgradeCost,"<","&lt;")>
            <cfset variables.CostPlanFrom = 0>
			
          	<cfif #CostPlan# neq ''>
				<cfswitch expression="#CostPlan#">
 				<cfcase value="&lt;$100K">
                    <cfset variables.CostPlanFrom = variables.CostPlanFrom + 0>
                    0
 				</cfcase>
 				<cfcase value="$100K to $500K">
                	<cfset variables.CostPlanFrom = variables.CostPlanFrom + 100>
                    100
 				</cfcase>
 				<cfcase value="$500K to $1M">
                	<cfset variables.CostPlanFrom = variables.CostPlanFrom + 500>
 					500
 				</cfcase>
 				<cfcase value="$1M to $5M">
                    <cfset variables.CostPlanFrom = variables.CostPlanFrom + 1000000>
 					1000000
 				</cfcase> 
                <cfcase value=">$5M">
                    <cfset variables.CostPlanFrom = variables.CostPlanFrom + 5000000>
 					5000000
 				</cfcase>
				<cfdefaultcase>
				   Could not match [#costPlan#]
				</cfdefaultcase>
                </cfswitch> 
           <cfelse>
              Empty CostPlan
           </cfif>
		   <br>
</cfoutput>

If your query FiveYearPlan has an ID for each of the values, it might be better to use the ID in the cfswitch for an easier match.

ha, yes, I always like using defaultcase around the holidays to help spot little problems, like who did I forget to buy a present for! :)
