Using Field Calculation to combine only textAsked by SpiritofGeorgia on December 02, 2015 at 03:18 PM
Is it possible to use the Field Calculation in the same way as the condition field update? I need to keep separate fields for filtering in the background, but only want one combined field to show on the form. There is not condition that needs to be met, I just need to combine two text fields.
Example: Title | Division | Title Division
I changed all of the form calculations to text boxes with a conditional update. The + sign between fields in the calculations was not giving the right presentation.
Yes that's possible. Make sure to set the output to text first so it will not perform any possible calculations when the source contains a number.
If you have further questions, do let us know.
Wow... I can't believe I missed that! Spent an entire day fighting this. Guaranteed to never forget it in the future!
On behalf of my colleague, you are welcome.
