Comparison in Derived Field (PCPW)

Comparison in Derived Field (PCPW)

Comparison in Derived Field (PCPW)

(OP)
I am using ADP - PCPW and would like to create a derived field to describe an employees position in the paygrade range based on the percentofrange.  I couldn't figure out how to use comparisons like "percentofrange >= 67) so I resorted to the brute force method below.  Is there a more elegant way to do this?

Thanks in advance for any help.

RE: Comparison in Derived Field (PCPW)

With SQL Base that is the way to do it.  If you had a CASE statement (Like Oracle does) it would be better.
