Set Value to the value you wish to compare.



The THEN and ELSE values can use column variables. For example:


 IF x = 0

    THEN $(1)




You can simulate OR with multiple IF statements. For example:


 IF x = 1 OR y = 2 

    THEN 3


  Is equivalent to:


 IF x = 1

    THEN 3

 ELSE IF y = 2

    THEN 3


Number, date and text values are treated differently for Equal to, Greater than, Less than, Greater than equal, Less than equal and Not equal to operations. Any values that can be converted to a number will be treated as a number. Any values that match the supported date formats in Preferences will be treated as a date.

All values are treated as text for Contains, Starts with, Ends with, Matches regex, Is not, Doesn't start with, Doesn't end with and Doesn't match regex operations.

Comparisons of text are case and whitespace sensitive. You can use Case to change the case, Whitespace to remove whitespace before filtering and Replace to get of other unwanted characters (e.g. whitespace inside the text).

See here for more details on Regular expressions (regex).
