Mathcad help needed

  1. Aug 4, 2006 #1
    Dear Mathcad wiz,
    I have been trying for the last week to get the correct syntax for the following program. I am unable to link a series of if statements.

    I have programmed it already in Excel which was pretty simple.

    it is an if statement with another if statement attached if the condition is not met...

    it would go something like this...

    if Deflect is less than 0.9, the Thickness value = 0.125 otherwise if Deflect is still less than 0.9 the Thicknes value=0.25, otherwise if Deflect is still less than 0.9 the Thickness value=0.5 .........should stop and exit the loop at the Thickness value where the Thickness value just exceeds 0.9.

    The Excel syntax is pretty simple... but Mathcad has fried my brains.

    I have come up with something but it does not work...find it at the following link.

    Thank you.
