• I need a little help, i am trying to have the program do a calculation based on where the amount is. so it takes the amount from pay.txt and then needs to figure if its between this amount, so say its 700.00, then i need it to decide is it greater than or equal to 500.00 and less then or equal to 1000.00? any help would be appreciated.

Hi,

I presume pay is a Textbox?

If so try this code with one button and a textbox named pay on your FORM.>>

Public Class Form1

Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click

Dim amount As Double

Double.TryParse(pay.Text, amount)

If amount >= 500 And amount <= 1000 Then

End If

End Sub

End Class

Regards,

John

### All replies

• You could try a bunch of if-then statements, or a
SELECT CASE dblAmount

Case 0 to 100
code here for that
Case 101 to 200
code here for that
.
.
.
Case Else
code for handling out of range situations
END SELECT

If the money is coming in from various sources, you could set flags for those sources, and test in the code "code here for that", then handle appropriately.  An example could be whether taxable, or non-taxable, or service fee required, or not, etc.
