How come I get error 508 missing pair from OpenOffice?

by on August 7, 2011

Q: Open Office; err: 508

=IF(G10<8000,1283, IF(G10<10000,G10*.3, IF(G10<12000,G10*.35, G10*0.4)))

I understand err:508 to be a missing pair; however, I count 3 open and 3 closed?

Please help!

Thank you-

    I suspect your problem is that you are using commas instead of semi colons. Excel uses commas so it is a common mistake but OpenOffice actually uses semi colons. So give “;” a try instead and that should solve your problem.
