If test is True (any non-zero numeric result), FileMaker Pro returns result1. If test is False (0), result2 is returned. Test must be an expression that returns either a numeric or Boolean (True, False) result.
By default, if test refers to a field that doesn’t yet contain a value, If returns an empty result. To override this functionality, deselect the Do not evaluate if all referenced fields are empty checkbox.
If(Country = “USA”;“US Tech Support”;“International Tech Support”) returns International Tech Support, if the Country field contains France or Japan. Returns US Tech Support if the Country field contains USA.
