How to get a Formula to output a text.

Hi,

 

Not sure what the Synthax is for a Formula to return a text is. I have my Line Item formatted as Text, but want to know if I'm on the right track with the formula. 

 

IF 'Y01 Collection_Funding'.Front Book=1 THEN &"WITH PH"& ELSE &"WITHOUT PH"

 

 

Thank you

  • Hi!

     

    It is simple. Write just "text". And it works this way.

    When you combine some text and variables or text and another text, you should use "&".

     

    IF Flag? THEN "text1" & valiable1 ELSE "text2" & valiable2

  • Break the formula out and use text formatte line items to feed in the statements. 

    Also, use a boolean to inform the IF statement contained in a seperate line item. 

    When you find issues arising from tricky formulas always break them out into its constituent parts.

    Good luck,
