Hello folks, I need your help!

I have a job that needs to print with a different layout depending on what code is tagged to the data. I have 12 layouts.. (ugh)

I think I'm understanding how to write the IF expression for cases where only one code matches the layout. But how do I tell it if code says "A", "B", or "C" all print layout X?

Any insight would be appreciated.

In this case, you could use an expression like this one:

IF([CODE] = "A" OR [CODE] = "B" OR [CODE] = "C", Print, Skip)

Replace [CODE] by whatever field name you use for the code. This will print the layout if it's equal to A, B or C. Otherwise, it will skip it.

Hope that helps!

This helps a ton! I was forgetting the field name in the OR's. Makes perfect sense now that I see it. Haha

Thanks a bunch!
