## Re: if statement work only if a value is selected

clearly, valmaternité has other values before selection, if it is a variable you will have to trigger it to 1

if it is a field, it is a null so you definitely need to select 1.

what exactly are you trying to compute with your formula?

I am thinking you  should convert your expression to Set Analysis so you dont have to worry about selecting 1 for valmaternité

Because that's how If statement works.

If condition is fulfilled, then action, else action....

in your case if you select 1 for valmaternité, your formula will work, just as you mentioned.

valmaternité is a calculated variable which take 1 if the date is in an interval of time.

i am trying to full the field either of 1 hours or 2 hours and i want it to do this accordind to the date in the table.

## Re: if statement work only if a value is selected

looks like valmaternité is a field not a variable, therefore, upon load, your expression will not return value, or should i day the condition to which your expression was defined is not fulfilled until you make the selection to 1
