ESRI Raster Calculator error “Con()”

I"m trying to nest expressions in this raster calculator conditional statement, but I get an error.

This statement works, so I tried to follow it as a template:

Con (IsNull("ras1"),"ras2","ras3")

Separately, this statement works

"rasB"-(5+(1/(1+"rasC"))*5)*("RasD"<=20)

And I'd love to merge them into one calulation liek this

Con(IsNull("rasA"),
("rasB"-(5+(1/(1+"rasC"))*5)*("RasD"<=20),
("rasB"-(5+(1/(1+"rasC"))*5)*("RasD"<=500))))

Where "rasA" is null, return "rasB"-(5+(1/(1+"rasC"))5)("RasD"<=20). Otherwise return "rasB"-(5+(1/(1+"rasC"))5)("RasD"<=500)

I get the error shown below so I'm trying to figure out if Con() requires a layer like the error says or if can I use an expression and I just entered it wrong. • Please remember to place the complete error text in the question as ASCII.

Your parentheses are incorrect. You have parentheses around both the True and False expressions, i.e:

Con(condition, (true_expression, false_expression))

It should be:

Con(condition, true_expression, false_expression)

Try:

Con(IsNull("rasA"), "rasB"-(5+(1/(1+"rasC"))*5)*("RasD"<=20), "rasB"-(5+(1/(1+"rasC"))*5)*("RasD"<=500))

Or:

Con(IsNull("rasA"), ("rasB"-(5+(1/(1+"rasC"))*5)*("RasD"<=20)), ("rasB"-(5+(1/(1+"rasC"))*5)*("RasD"<=500)))
• Parentheses...I always miss some mundane detail like that! point of clarification... in your answer, instead of Con(condition, true_expression, true_expression) should it be Con(condition, true_expression, FALSE_expression) ? – Zipper1365 Mar 27 at 15:02
