Set conditions across fields: If a user appears in any one of three fields show the record on a report Report needs to show records where the current user appears in any of three fields: Owner, Author or Reviewer Conditional (If - Then) Create a custom formula column (type checkbox) with the following formula:

[Owner]=User() or
[Author]=User() or
[Reviewer]=User()
If the
Owner field contains the value that is the current user or
Author field contains the value that is the current user or
Reviewer field contains the value that is the current user
then turn on the checkbox
Checkbox Because the custom column is a checkbox type field, you don't need to use an If() function to set the condition. If the conditions listed are met, the value in the custom column is automatically Yes (in other words, the checkbox is turned on).

Once you create this formula for the custom column of your report, you must set the filtering section to take advantage of it. Select Custom Column is and then type in the word YES.

Dynamically adjusting successor start dates from predecessor changes Related to Project Management application Calculation If( ([Status]<>"Completed"),WeekdayAdd([Start], [Duration]),
 ToWorkDate([Actual Finish Date])  )

The predecessor field (under properties) needs to be changed from formula builder to Type-In.
If the task is not completed, it calculates the expected end date (by adding the amount of time it will take to when it starts), and if the task is completed, then it uses the date that it was actually finished, as entered by the user completing the task. Workdate     More on this solution...
Limit the text that an append field displays If you include an append field in a view, it often takes up a lot of room because it contains so much text. If you want, you can display only the last entry in the append field. Text Right([History],"[") Within the History field, take and display all characters to the right of the rightmost [ character. Text Use this solution if your append field is set to APPEND entries. If the field is set to prepend entries instead, try: Part([History],2,"[") If your append field is set to PREPEND text, use this formula instead: 
Part([History],2,"[")

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...
Show records for which events have occurred in the last week Show records where any one of several date fields contains a date that occurred in the last week Conditional (If - Then) If(ToDays(Today()-[Sales Presentation])<7,true,false) or 
If(ToDays(Today()-[Follow-Up Meeting (2)])<7,true,false) or
If(ToDays(Today()-[Follow-Up Meeting (3)])<7,true,false) or
If(ToDays(Today()-[Follow-Up Meeting (4)])<7,true,false) or
If(ToDays(Today()-[STR Meeting])<7,true,false)
If you subtract the date in the Sales Presentation field from today and it's greater than seven, turn the checkbox field on (true), otherwise turn it off (false). 

Each line of the formula beginning with "If" repeats these same conditions for each field listed. Each If/Then condition is joined by an "or" operator. This means that if the condition is met in any field, QuickBase will turn on the checkbox field.
Checkbox Use this formula to create a view. You can feature the checkbox field in the view to see which records have it checked and which don't. 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 where this checkbox field is on.

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...
Set status based on whether or not another field is checked. Automatically set the Status field to "Complete," when a staff member enters a date in the Completion Date field. Conditional (If - Then) Design the Status field using the following formula:

if(isnull([Completion Date]), "Pending", "Complete")
If no one's entered a value in the Completion Date field (in other words that field is null) then display the word "Pending." If not, display the word "Complete." Text     More on this solution...
Calculate the number of months that the date of last payment is past due I want to show the number of months overdue, but include complete months only, leaving off possible partial months. Dates Floor ( ToDays (Today() - [Date of Last Payment]) / 30) Subtract the Date of Last Payment from Today. ToDays converts that duration to a numeric value of days.  Divide that number by 30 and return the the number of complete months that have passed. Numeric Floor() function returns the largest integer that's less than the number in question. For example, Floor(2.4) would return 2. Likewise, Floor (2.7) would return 2.   More on this solution...
Show only records where any checkbox is turned on Formula to create a view that shows records where [checkbox 1] is turned on OR [checkbox 2] is on OR [checkbox 3] is on and so on Conditional (If - Then) If(([F1] or 
[F2] or
[F3])=true, true, 
false)
If F1 or F2 or F3 checkboxes are turned on (True), then this formula returns True (yes), otherwise it returns false (no). Checkbox You'd use this formula to create a "custom column" in the view builder. The custom column type is "checkbox." Then set the view's matching criteria to <custom column> = Yes. When you do so, your view shows only those records that meet the condition of the formula.

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:
