Hi guys

I’m trying to use the formula IF to return some values. This is my example:

I have 4 conditions, wich are the number of words that a text must have:

• 500 words
• 1000 words
• 2000 words
• 2500 words

And to each one I have a specific value

• To 500 return 30
• To 1000 return 45
• To 2000 return 55
• T0 2500 return 70

I tried to use the formula that I use in Google Sheets: =IF({number of words}=500;30;IF({number of words}=1000;45;IF({number of words}=2000;55)))

I tried to use this way but it returns error. How could I use this formula in my case?

The Airtable syntax is a little different, but they’re nearly identical.
`IF({number of words}=500,30,IF({number of words}=1000,45,IF({number of words}=2000,55)))`

Here’s that code refactored:
`SWITCH(LEN({words}),500,30,1000,45,2000,55)`
