  • 1.  Override Application Variables

    Posted 14 days ago
    Hi Everyone,

    Is there any way to override an application variable? The problem is that I will need to make an exception for an application variable. For instance, I would like to say if resource type equals to "contractor", labor multiplier (Application variable) equals to 1, otherwise 2.7.
    I came up with the following formula which doesn't seem to work
    if([Resource Type]<> "Contractor", [labor multiplier]=1, 2.7)

    Thank you in advance

    Are you trying to set your app variable?

    Or rethink the equation

    If ([Resource Type]="contractor", 1 , [Labor Multiplier])
    Assuming labor multiplier is 2.7

    Hi Douglas,

    I have already set the value for my app variable (labor multiplier=2.7). When try to use your formula it gives me following syntax error:
    "excepting number but found text"
    *My field type is Numeric-formula

    If ([Resource Type]="contractor", 1 , ToNumber([Labor Multiplier]))

    Application Variables are type text so need to be converted to numeric.

    Sorry –

     

    The app variables are text so you'll have to covert the text to a number in the formula.

    I will look deeper into it.
