Thanks. Okay, so that makes it simpler.

Well, without seeing your job and the data file, it's hard to suggest a specific rule to write.

But you don't need any JavaScript at all to accomplish this.

You can make a series of Drag-and-Drop Wizard rules to pull in one of two graphics, depending on whether the value in the data for each field is zero or not, something like this:

Or you could make a Switch Wizard rule, similarly doing a numeric comparison and returning one graphic for the case of a zero value and another by default.

Also, you're not really still on FusionPro version 7.2 like your profile says, are you? You might want to update that.

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.
