I need to reference a calculation field to bring back a value in another field

This field is calculating correctly based on the value in equipment

the field name is LevelRate

var nEquipment = this.getField("equipment").value;

if (nEquipment<=49999)
    event.value = .0550;
else if  (nEquipment>=50000)
    event.value = .0525;

I want to reference LevelRate in another field

if LevelRate is .0550 the new field VariableRate need to be .0574

I'm trying this but it's not working I tried calculation order and putting it in validate vs. calculate

this.getField("LevelRate").value

if (LevelRate=.0550)
    event.value = .0574;

else if (LevelRate=.0525)
    event.value = .0549;

Try this:

LevelRate = Number(this.getField("LevelRate").valueAsString);

if (LevelRate == .0550)

    event.value = .0574;

else if (LevelRate == .0525)

    event.value = .0549;

I would also add this line at the end, just in case the result is neither one of those values:

else event.value = "";

Bernd,

This is brilliant, thank you so much. I'm a non-coder and just trying to hack it
