**M732burke**I am trying to use the conditional computation/calculation screen to populate two fields based on what the user selects in the employee name field. Does this conditional operator only return numbers? I want to put in text. It works, just puts in a huge number of digits/numbers even when I limit the field size.

**Charlie**Hi,

I'm not sure if I understood your concern completely, do you want to output text but has a calculation on it? Could you please share us an example or how it would work in your form?
