Convert dates to European format Is there any way to change the default date format in my Date Identified field to the european DD/MM/YYYY? Dates Left(NotLeft(ToText([Date Identified]),"-"),"-")& "-" & 
Case(Left(ToText([Date Identified]),2),
"10","Oct","11","Nov","12","Dec")& "-" 
& Right(ToText([Date Identified]),"-")
  Text You can't do this within a date field. You must create a formula - text type field to display dates in this format.   More on this solution...
Remove "the" from names to enable alphabetical sorting You have a list of organizations, some of which start with THE. You want to remove the THE so you can sort the list alphabetically. Text If(Contains(Left([Organization Name],3),"The"), NotLeft([Organization Name],4), [Organization Name]) If the Organization Name field's leftmost three characters are "the" then remove the four leftmost characters (Why specify 4 instead of 3? To remove the space after "the"). Otherwise (if there's no "the") just show the organization name. Text     More on this solution...
Color each row differently, based on the status of each task. You want to color code rows based on the value in the Status field. Row Colorization case([Status], "Not Started", "#FFCC99", 
"Started", "#99FFFF", 
"In Progress", "#FFFFCC", 
"On Hold", "#9999CC", 
"Completed", "#99FF99", "")
If the value in the Status field is "Not Started," then color the row a shade of orange (#FFCC99). 
If the value in the Status field is "Started," then color the row a shade of blue (#99FFFF).
If the value in the Status field is "In Progress," then color the row a shade of yellow (#FFFFCC).
If the value in the Status field is "On Hold," then color the row a shade of purple (#9999CC).
If the value in the Status field is "Completed," then color the row a shade of green (#99FF99)

If the value in the Status field is none of these, don't color it.
none - view builder formula This formula doesn't use the if() function. Because you want to set multiple conditions on one field, it's more efficient to use the case() function.   More on this solution...
Display a value that depends upon the value in a percent complete field Show status "not started" "in process" or "completed" based on the value in the percent complete field. Conditional (If - Then) Case(true,
[percent complete]=0,"not started",
[percent complete]<1,"in process",
[percent complete]=1,"complete","")
If the value in the percent complete field is zero, the display the text "not started." If the value in the percent complete field is less than 100%, then display the text "in process." If the value in the percent complete field is 100%, display the text "complete" Text A numeric percentage field shows values in percent format, like 50%, 75% and so on. But their real value is the exact mathematical representation of percent, which is always a portion of the whole number, one. For example, 20% is really.2 and 3% is really the number .03.   More on this solution...
Create a view that contains records for the "current month" only   Conditional (If - Then) If(Month([Date])=Month(Today()), "Current Month","Not Current Month") If the month in the Date field is the same month as today, then display the text "Current Month" otherwise display the text "Not Current Month. Text Use this formula to create a view. You can feature the text field in the view to see which records say "Current Month." You can also use this custom formula field in the view's criteria. In other words, design the view so that you only see those records that occur in the Current Month. Read more about using custom columns in views here:

If a field is not blank (null), then display a value in another field Calculate the Revenue field, only if your staff has entered a date in the Submitted for Billing field. Conditional (If - Then) Design the actual Revenue field using the following formula:

If(not IsNull([Submitted for Billing]),[Revenue Forecast])
If the Submitted for Billing field is not empty (or null), then display the value from the Revenue Forecast field. Text     More on this solution...

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:
