I am trying to create a fomula field in Quickbase with and If statement so that I can just stick that form on the Exact form. I am just not good at formulas in general.

This is basically what I am trying to say:

If the option chosen in Ship To2 is "Shop", Display the result in field " [Shop Address2]"

The formula I have, which is obviously not working is below. Can someone please tell me what I have to do to get this to work? 

Thank you! 


[Ship To2]="Shop" ," [Shop Address2]",

[Ship To2]="Project","[Project – Location]",

[Ship To2]="Customer","[Project - Customer - Address] ",

[Ship To2]="Other”, “[Address]")

Try this


[Ship To2]="Shop" ,[Shop Address2],

[Ship To2]="Project",[Project – Location],

[Ship To2]="Customer",[Project - Customer - Address],

[Ship To2]="Other”, [Address])

You do not use the quotes if you are referring to a field.

Use a Case() statement instead of and If() statement when you are testing one field against a number of different values:

Case([Ship To2],
  "Shop", [Shop Address2],
  "Project", [Project – Location],
  "Customer", [Project - Customer - Address] ,
  "Other”, [Address]
