Variables and if statements

Having difficulty with using variables in IF statements (being used as measures). Trying to use these expressions in a straight table. The variables themselves work fine in the tables, but trying to use them in conjunction with the IF statements are not working? Can't figure out why they won't work ... usually get back (zero) or a blank field. Any help is appreciated.


vExample = Sum(sales)

if ( parts_age <= 90, $(vExample) )  ----- Does not seem to work?

if ( parts_age = 90, $(vExample) )  ----- Does seem to work ???

Is there an issue with using relational operators in IF statements????

Re: Variables and if statements


while creating new variable make sure '=' was removed for the Variable value.

= Sum(sales)


Re: Variables and if statements

There's nothing wrong with either statement. To get more useful help and not just guesswork, I suggest that you upload a small sample qvw to illustrate the problem.
