Convert Google Sheet script to work in Airtable

I use the below script to get a state depending on the zip code from a cell. How can I format it to work in Airtable?

function getState(input) {


/* Ensure param is a string to prevent unpredictable parsing results */
if (typeof input !== ‘string’) {
console.log(‘Must pass the zipcode as a string.’);
return;
}

/* Ensure we have exactly 5 characters to parse */
if (input.length !== 5) {
console.log(‘Must pass a 5-digit zipcode.’);
return;
}

/* Ensure we don’t parse strings starting with 0 as octal values */
const zipcode = parseInt(input, 10);

let st;
let state;

/* Code cases alphabetized by state */

You want to use this as a formula in Airtable, or in a Script in Airtable?

A formula would be best since I’d like it to return a state automatically.

Hi, I typed in this formula but it is saying there is an error. I’m not sure where it would be because I copied and pasted each IF statement with the closing parentheses.

Start with just three states in your new formula - validate it works; then add the new states. I recommend building the formulas in a text editor so you can easily create and sustain a pattern. Then copy new versions into the formula field and test with each incremental edit.

I did that, but now I see that it only works for up to 10 of the IF statements. I now am searching if there is a limit to the number of nested functions.

I’ve seen some very long formulas before, so I doubt you’re at the limit. More likely you’re seeing a logic issue.

Another suggestion - consider Switch() instead of IF() if possible. It may help to simplify the code perhaps.
