Nickname in quotation marks


Recommended Posts

In addition to the standard 'first name' and 'last name' fields on my submission form, I have also included a 'nickname' option.  Currently on my results form I have a configured field set up with this formula:  [@field:First_Name] + SPACE(1) + CHAR(34) + [@field:Nickname] + CHAR(34) + SPACE(1) + [@field:Last_Name] and it works brilliantly when there is a nickname.  However, if there isn't then I get a weird result that looks something like this:  Jane "" Doe

Long question short, how do i get the quotation marks to only show up when there is something actually in the nickname field (checking the box 'hide if blank' doesn't work, I still get the weird quotations side by side between the first and last name.  

I'm open to suggestions.  Thanks in advance for your help. - Juliette

Hi Juliette,

As far as I understand you use calculated field. You may use CASE statement and check if the nickname has value. 

CASE 

WHEN Len([@field:Nickname])>1 
Then '[@field:First_Name]' + SPACE(1) + CHAR(34) + '[@field:Nickname]' + CHAR(34) + SPACE(1) + '[@field:Last_Name]'

ELSE '[@field:First_Name]' + SPACE(1) +  '[@field:Last_Name]'

END
