Default And Comparison Rule

I am working on a merge where a chart picture is inserted that shows claims from 2012 and 2013.

If there are no claims I don't want the empty chart to show up.

Originally I wrote my rule so that if the 2012 and 2013 claims totals did not equal '$0.00 ' it would insert a picture. Unfortunately, it did not add charts that only had claims in 2012. So, if 2013 claims were $0.00 it did not add a picture.

Here is the rule that does not work:

Code:
if (Field("2012 Claims Total") != '$0.00 ' && Field("2013 Claims Total") != '$0.00 ')
return CreateResource("/Users/Desktop/Projects/Fee Mailing/Merge Links/Chart Samples/" + (Field("@ClaimsChart")));
I rewrote the rule so that if 2012 and 2013 claims totals equaled $0.00 it would return a null resource, else it would return the claim chart.

This rule works:

Code:
if  (Field("2012 Claims Total") == '$0.00 ' && Field("2013 Claims Total") == '$0.00 ') 
return NullResource()  

else return CreateResource("/Users//Desktop/Projects/Fee Mailing/Merge Links/Chart Samples/" + (Field("@ClaimsChart")))
What am I missing to get the first code to work correctly?


Thanks,
Jeremy

Change your original rule to be an OR || instead of an AND && and it should work. I think your new rule is better though.

I need it to not show the graph if both 2012 and 2013 claims are $0.00, so using OR || wouldn't work.

Right, but conversely, you need to show the graph if either 2012 OR 2013 claims are NOT zero. Think about it: If the either order is not zero, then both can't be zero. The use of the != (not equal) operator changes things.

More generally, with Boolean logic, the converse of "if A and B" is "if not A OR not B", not "if not A and not B".

So Thomas is correct. Try it and see.

I am a not a Support engineer, and this forum is not a substitute for Support. My participation on this forum is primarily as a fellow user (and a forum moderator). I am happy to provide help and answers to questions when I can; however, there is no guarantee that I, or anyone else on this forum, will be able to answer all questions or fix any problems. If I ask for files to clarify an issue, I might not be able to look at them personally. I am not able to answer private messages, emails, or phone calls unless they go through proper Support channels. Please direct any sales or pricing questions to your salesperson or inquiries@marcom.com.

Complex template-building questions, as well as all installation and font questions or problems, should be directed to FusionProSupport@marcom.com. Paid consulting work may be required to fulfill your template-building needs.

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)});

OR || produces the results needed.

Thanks for the help!
