# If..Then with multiple criteria

## If..Then with multiple criteria

(OP)
I read that ReportBasic is not Boolean, so how would I go about something to this effect:

If Field A = X and Field B = Y Then
D = Z
Else if Field A = X and Field B = Z then
D = Q

### RE: If..Then with multiple criteria

If you're doing a macro, you would write it like:

If Field$("A") = "X" and Field$("B") = "Y" Then
D = "Z"
Else
If Field$("A") = "X" and Field$("B") = "Z" Then
D = "Q"
Else
D = "No value"
End if
DerivedField(D)

I find it easier to either do a decode or case statement using a derived field.  Macros tend to slow down you querie and macros are alway after the fact.  Not to mention, if you're using numbers with this querie you would have to seperately write a SUM field to calculate SUMS or COUNTS - and you can't even group or sort on macros.
