Binary Operators (act on multiple values) != <any> x, <any> y Boolean Same as <>. Returns true if x is not equal to y, otherwise returns false. x and y must be the same type. As with most other functions, null argument values produce a null result, so it is not possible to test for null with this operator. To test for null, use IsNull() instead. (3 / 4 <> 0.75) returns false Display Reference More examples
Binary Operators (act on multiple values) & <any> u, <any> v Text Returns a text value that is the concatenation of u and v. Use this operator to link strings of characters together in a formula text field. If u or v is not a text value, QuickBase automatically inserts the function ToText() to convert the value to text before concatenating it. Does not support User or UserList. "abc" & "def" returns "abcdef"
"abc" & 5 returns "abc5"
[First Name] & " " & [Last Name] concatenates the values in the First Name and Last Name field with a space in between them.

Special Case (<any> x, <any> val1, <any> result1, ..., <any> else-result) <same type as result1> Case() is a variation of the If() function. If you want to test many conditions against a single field, use the Case() function instead of the If() function. QuickBase evaluates the value x and compares it to each of the values that follow (val1 and so on) sequentially. If the value X matches any value, QuickBase returns the corresponding result which lives behind the comma following the matched value. If value x is not equal to any of the values, QuickBase returns the else-result at the end of the formula. The else-result is optional. If omitted, QuickBase assumes it's null (empty). The value x may be of any data type, but all of the values must be of the same type as x. Case([Grade], "A", 100, "B", 90, null)

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. Otherwise, return nothing (null).

Count ("", "abc", true, false, 53) returns 3

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.
