Function Details
(Boolean condition1, <any> result1, ..., <any> else-result)
<same type as result1>
If condition1 is true, returns result1, otherwise returns else-result. You can include additional condition/result pairs before the final else-result (as in the first example). QuickBase evaluates the conditions in sequence until one is found to be true, and then the corresponding result is returned. The else-result is optional. If omitted, QuickBase assumes it's null (or empty - a blank). All conditions must be of type Boolean (return a true or a false). Results may be of any type, but they must all be the same type.
If([Grade]="A", 100, [Grade]="B", 90)

This formula says: if the value in the Grade field is A, then return 100. If the value in the Grade field is B, then return 90.

IF([Order Complete]=TRUE, [Subtotal] + [Tax], null)

This formula says: If the Order Complete checkbox is on, then add the value in the subtotal field to the value in the tax field and display it. If not, then leave the field empty (or null).

When you bring additional fields into a conversion, Quick Base often finds inconsistencies. For example, say you're converting your Companies column into its own table. One company, Acme Corporation, has offices in New York, Dallas and Portland. So, when you add the City column to the conversion, Quick Base finds three different locations for Acme. A single value in the column you're converting can only match one value in any additional field. Quick Base needs you to clean up the extra cities before it can create your new table. To do so, you have one of two choices:

  • If you want to create three separate Acme records (Acme-New York, Acme-Dallas and Acme-Portland) click the Conform link at the top of the column.
  • If the dissimilar entries are mistakes (say Acme only has one office in New York and the other locations are data-entry errors) go back into your table and correct the inconsistencies—in this case, changing all locations to New York. Then try the conversion again.
