Join Values from Multiple FieldsAsked by criterions on May 05, 2015 at 08:39 AM
It might be too much to ask, but does anyone know if it is possible to a fields value (using conditions) by concatenating something to its current value. Something like this:
Field 1: Dog
Field 2: Cat
Field 3: Mouse
I want to update Field 1 by using its current value and appending the value of Field 2 and Field 3 to it, yielding:
I've attempted it and get some bizarre results.
Repopulating a filed that is used in the same condition criteria will result in unpredictable data and text output will be repetitive, I would recommend using the form calculation widget and the outputting the concatenating values in its result textbox.
Add a calculation widget to your form
Select the Three fields to include in your calculation
Click on the numeric fields to change the input type to text
Now click on Show Advanced options
