How to script if-else condition in dynamic update action

Hello QlikView community,

I'm facing the problem to script a (simple) if-else condition in Qlikview.

I want to pull a trigger when changing the value of a variable (variable event trigger , to be specific the "OnInput" option).

When adding the dynamic update action, I want to change a fieldvalue with the string I just entered into the variable.

The code looks like this :

if  '$(vCostCentre)' = '' then

  UPDATE ProfitCenterMap

  SET ProfitCenterMap.CarveOutCategory ='$(vClassification)'

  WHERE LineItem.ProfitCentre = '$(vProfitCentre)' ;


  UPDATE CostCenterMap

  SET CostCenterMap.CarveOutCategory = '$(vClassification)'

  WHERE LineItem.CostCentre = '$(vCostCentre)' ;

end if


I read the qlikview reference Manual and wrote the script above according to: https://help.qlik.com/de-DE/qlikview/12.0/Subsystems/Client/Content/Scripting/ScriptControlStatement...

I also found another Syntax here IF & Else condition :

Simple if function:

if(condition , then , else)

Thank you in advance.
