Conditional text fields

Post by colonel_panic » Tue Jun 12, 2018 6:32 pm

Hi.

Is it possible to set a conditional field in a form letter which displays text if a field is not empty?

I suppose you need a solution for TextMaker, right?
Let's assume the field which sets the condition is called "TEXTBOX1". Then you insert a calculation with the formula: IF(TEXTBOX1="";"";"text").
When TEXTBOX1 is empty, the result of the calculation is void, otherwise it displays "text".

Yes, Jossi. Thank you! I am talking about fields in tables in TextMaker.

What I'd like to do specifically is have a string of text in a document that is displayed along with the contents of the cell if there is some text in the field. For example, if the cell in my table contained no text, the result of the formula would be empty. However, if the cell did contain some text, I'd like the result of the formula to return "some text "contents of cell.

Is this possible?
