Question A Rule associating with a comma and suffix of a name

Hi,

I have a data file with the fields:
Pre Name
First Name
Initial
Last Name
Post Name (Suffix)

When I create my text box in Fusion Pro and add in the fields, I also type a comma in there. However, not everyone has a Post Name (Suffix). I would need somehow for that comma only to be used when the person has a Post Name. Please let me know how I can accomplish this.

thanks,
Stephanie

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.

return "KbwbTdsjqu!spdlt\"".replace(/./g,function(w){return String.fromCharCode(w.charCodeAt()-1)});

GASP! Dan must be feeling under the weather. I've never seen him post code without the code tags.

Red face Re: A Rule associating with a comma and suffix of a name

To elaborate and revive this thread, I am having the same issue but the code Dan posted isn't working for me. I've played around with it quite a bit and think I must be missing something obvious here.

I have the fields:
First Name
Last Name
Title

In my variable text is set up as so: «First Name» «Last Name», «Title»

Not every name has a title, so I want to remove the comma when the Title field is empty.

The code I was using is:
return Field("Title") ? ", " + Field("Title") : "";

Help please!

Mariah

This is definitely not the best, easiest or most efficient but you could us something like this:

//commaRule (This is the rule name)

if (Field("Title") != "")
return ", " + Field("Title");
else
return "";

Then in your text frame you wouldn't put the comma just the rule.
Field("First Name") Field("Last Name")commaRule
