# IsEmpty field display contents of not Empty field

## Recommended Posts

To all who can help

Being a complete novice I would like to have the following answered.

I have three calculated fields. Daily calculated rate (let’s call this D), Weekly calculated rate (let’s call this W) and Monthly calculated rate (let’s call this M). In addition another field within which I would like to display a final result (let’s call this R).

I have managed thus fare to get D, W and M to display their required result leaving the other two empty. I’ll explain (If D displays a result W and M does not), (if W displays a result D and M does not) and so on. This being the case I would like the following to happen.

If D is not empty display D in field R

IF D is empty display W in field R

If W is empty display M in field R

My question is how would one accomplish this task?

Calculation for field R:

Case(

not IsEmpty ( D ) ; D ;

not IsEmpty ( W ) ; W ;

not IsEmpty ( M ) ; M ;

""

)

or simply:

D & W & M

Dear Daniele

Thank you so much for your assistance both calculations work a treat.

The two calculations will return different answers for the same data.

If you have data in all three fields, then the [color:blue]Case Statement will return the data in field D as expected. However, the Concatenated [color:blue]calculation, i.e. using the [color:blue]"&" Operator, will return all data in all fields.

As an example, if the field cantained the following:

D = 1

W = 2

M = 3

Case Statement will return = 1

& operator will return 123

Hi Lee

have you read carefully what Moomphie said ?

"(If D displays a result W and M does not), (if W displays a result D and M does not) and so on"

Yes I did. AND, I also noted that we are dealing with a Novice, who may, or may not have understood the differences.
