Variable Field Name Formatting

Recommended Posts

Hi there, can I use the conditional formatting using a variable as part of the field name. The example is:- I have quite a complex set of conditional formats and I want to write a formula which takes account of part of the field name:

I have "field 1" to "field 53"

I want to have a formula to read something like this:-

if(GLOBAL NUMBER>rightwords(getactivefieldname);1);colour blue;colour red)

Can that be done? Or something like that? Or a custom function? I am sure it is easy, but I'm blowed if I can find how to do it! Thanks in advance.

A bit more information would help. But I would propose that 'I have "field 1" to "field 53"' indicates those might work better as related records because it sounds like they all serve similar purpose?

If the field is active, conditional formatting will not be applied to it.
