This is the problem I am working on ( you have likely seen it before)
A bank charges \$10 per month, plus the following check fees for a commercial
checking account:
\$0.10 each for less than 20 checks
\$0.08 each for 20 through 39 checks
\$0.06 each for 40 through 59 checks
\$0.04 each for 60 or more checks
Create an application that allows the user to enter the number of checks written.
The application should compute and display the bank’s service fees for the month.
All checks for the month are assigned the same charge, based on the total number of
checks written during the month.
Input validation: Do not accept a negative value for the number of checks written.
Ensure that all values are numeric. The Clear button must clear the text box and the
label that displays the monthly service charge.
Use the following test data to determine if the application is calculating properly. In
each case, the customer is charged only a single rate, based on the total number of
checks:

I am attempting right now to do the calculation part of the problem and thus far what I am getting is something like this
Type value into a textbox and then the program attempts to calculate the problem well i get no calculation , all it does is insert 0's into both the textbox and the label. I think I am perhaps missing something simple here to have it calculate correctly , any help or insight would be appreciated .

``````Dim checks As Double
Dim Fee As Double
Dim Q As Integer
If checks < 20 Then
Fee = checks * 0.1
ElseIf checks < 39 Then
Fee = checks * 0.08 + 1.9
ElseIf checks < 59 Then
Fee = checks * 0.8 + 1.9
ElseIf checks < 60 Then
Fee = checks * 0.8 + 1.9
End If
Q = CDbl(TextBox1.Text) * (Fee)
TextBox1.Text = checks
Label3.Text = CStr(Q)
``````

ElseIf checks < 39 Then
This doesn't give you the range 20 -38 but th range 0-38

Hmm ok well that fixes the issue of it displaying only zero's now I just need to figure out where my math is messing up. Example being 33 checks= 63 which is obviously incorrect ._.

(new code)

`````` Dim checks As Double
Dim Fee As Double
Dim Q As Integer
If checks > 1 And checks < 20 Then
Fee = checks * 0.1
ElseIf checks > 21 And checks < 39 Then
Fee = checks * 0.08 + 1.9
ElseIf checks > 40 And checks < 59 Then
Fee = checks * 0.8 + 1.9
ElseIf checks < 60 Then
Fee = checks * 0.8 + 1.9
End If
Q = CDbl(TextBox1.Text) * (Fee)
TextBox1.Text = checks
Label3.Text = CStr(Q)
``````

You are not showing enough code. Where do you count the clicks and under which condition?

This is for when a button is clicked, its suppose to calculate the check fee. and this is all the code that goes into the button.

You can't use checks to count the clicks. This could be anything. You need to setup a proper counter tha tincreases each time th bvutton is clicked. Use the button.click eventhandler for this.

Did you notice that if the number of checks written is >= 60 you don't do a calculation? You might want to consider a case statement which is simpler and clearer.

``````Select Case checks
Case 0 To 19
fee = 0.1
Case 20 To 39
fee = 0.08
Case 40 To 59
fee = 0.06
Case Else '60 or more
fee = 0.04
End Select
``````

That Case statement does indeed change it from 10 to 10.1 so that leaves the problem being the fact that I have no clue how to make a case statement multiply by the number of checks.

That Case statement does indeed change it from 10 to 10.1

I don't understand this statement. As for the multiplication, you do that after the select-case by

``````checks * fee
``````

and assuming you have done the validity checks, before the select-case you should have

`````` Dim checks As Double = CInt(TextBox1.Text)
``````

I strongly suggest you get into the habit of naming your controls. For example txtNumChecks instead of TextBox1.

@Jim
shouldn't that be Dim checks As Double = CDbl(TextBox1.Text) also OP has 2 threads now for the same topic

Actually, that should have been

``````Dim checks As Integer = CInt(TextBox1.Text)
``````

I had copied part of the code from the OP's original post without thinking about it.
