I am trying to create some asp code for a instant quote on a website.
Basically what I need to know is, how to code a lookup table.
Example: If someone orders 10 shirts and want 2 colors on the front, I need to beable to look up how much it will cost per shirt to have 2 colors.
10 shirts - 2 colors would be 3.10, but 13 shirts with 3 colors would be 3.00 and so on (12 colors and 11 different quantity fields, which total 132 different amounts).
Can this be easily done with a if then statement?

You can't just look it up - you'd have to create a gigantic array with every single combination in it! That would be a nightmare.

The way that most people would do this is to handle each condition separately.

So first, you determine the price for a single shirt. Say that a shirt costs $7.50 base. You would say

shirt = 7.50

then say that each additional color you add on adds another 40 cents to the shirt. So you would say

ColorAdd = ColorCount * .40


Shirt = Shirt + ColorAdd

Now you know how much that shirt costs with however many colors the user wanted. Finally, you just multiply times the number of shirts they want

ShirtTotal = Shirt * ShirtCt
