Calendar Event Color Code

  Asked By: Zoe    Date: Jul 08    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2030

I saw some code that would turn the background color of an event to a different
color based on choice column(TypeOfEvent) and a calculated column. Here is the
code for the calculated column. I keep getting a systax error. Can you tell me
why this is not working? I am just using the same background color until I get
this working.

="<Div style='border:1px solid #333; padding:5px; margin:0px;"
&IF ([TypeOfEvent] ="Green", "background-color:#ffffaa;", IF
([TypeOfEvent]="Blue", "background-color:#ffffaa;", IF ([TypeOfEvent]="Red",
"background-color:#ffffaa;", IF ([TypeOfEvent]="Yellow",
"background-color:#ffffaa;", "")))) & "'> "&[Title]&" </Div>"

haven't used the calculated  column like this so the syntax could be very
