If expressions

Not applicable
How do I create an expression if I want to return a value if another value is > or < a set value? For example:

if ( Subtotal < 25.00 ) then

ShippingCharge = 6.00

elseif ( Subtotal > 25.01 or < 50.00) then

ShippingCharge = 8.00

elseif ( Subtotal > 50.01 or < 75.00) then

ShippingCharge = 10.00


I know this is not the correct syntax but it illustrates what I'm trying to accomplish.

The syntax is listed in the "Scripting Reference" under LiveCycle Designer's menu "Help" option.

if ( simple expression ) then

elseif ( simple expression ) then

There are also examples available.

You could also use JavaScript and the "switch{case():...}" statement. Wich might more clearly state and test the comparisons.

What is the shipping charge if the Subtotal is $25.00, $25.01, $50.00 or $50.01? You have to be careful with the end points of ranges.

Thank you for your help. I found what was causing my problem. I was entering (Subtotal > 25.01 or < 50.00) when it should have been ( Subtotal > 25.01 and Subtotal <= 50.00).
