if then calc

Avatar

Level 2

I have a numeric field that calculates

a total.  I have a text field that I want to look at the nume

ric field and based on what the

number field says enter text.

This is what I have for my calc right now...its not working...I don't know if it should be formcalc or java

if

(TextField2.rawValue == 16 or 17 or 18 or 19 or 20 or 21 or 22 or 23 or 24 or 25)

{

this.rawValue

= "Low Risk"

}

else

(TextField2.rawValue == 26 or 27 or 28 or 29 or 30 or 31 or 32 or 33)

{

this.rawValue

= "Moderate Risk"

}

else

(TextField2.rawValue == 34 or 35 or 36 or 37 or 38 or 39 or 40 or 41 or 42)

{

this.rawValue

= "High Risk"

}

I don't believe the syntax works for either formcalc or javascript.  I don't use formcalc much, but in js you would need to do an else if :

if (TextField2.rawValue == 16 | TextField2.rawValue == 17 | etc etc put those other values in here)

{

     this.rawValue = "Low Risk";

}

else if (TextField2.rawValue == 26 | TextField2.rawValue == 27 | etc etc)

{

     this.rawValue = "Moderate Risk";

}

else if (TextField2.rawValue == 34 | TextField2.rawValue == 35 | etc etc)

{   

     this.rawValue = "High Risk";

}

That's just one way.  You could also setup variables and do a for loop, or even do a bunch of case statements using switch.  This above is easy just takes a lot of ors.  You need to make sure you explicitly state TextField2.rawValue == for every or, which is the | symbol.

if you want to do it in formcalc it could look like this:

if (NumericField1 >= 16 and NumericField1 <=25) then
    $ = "Low Risk"
elseif (NumericField1 >= 26 and NumericField1 <=33) then
    $ = "Moderate Risk"
elseif (NumericField1 >= 34 and NumericField1 <=42) then
    $ = "High Risk"   
endif

just make sure the box where they enter the number is a numeric field not a text field (like in your example).

Thank you...

How do you get that symbol to show up.  The one that means every or?
