Join text in a group and leave other text as is

(OP)
Need to join two text results in my group. The following represents what I want to do with these two texts and leave the other text results alone.
if GroupName ({AR_InvoiceHistoryHeader.ShipVia})="UPS GRD"
then GroupName ({AR_InvoiceHistoryHeader.ShipVia})="UPS GROUND"
else GroupName ({AR_InvoiceHistoryHeader.ShipVia})= GroupName ({AR_InvoiceHistoryHeader.ShipVia})

Your help is much appreciated.
Thanks.

RE: Join text in a group and leave other text as is

You need to do it before grouping, rather than after grouping,

//@group_by
if {table.field} = 'UPS GRD'
THEN 'UPS GROUND'
ELSE {table.field}

Then you group by that formula instead of the field.

RE: Join text in a group and leave other text as is

I am not sure what you are trying to achieve. But one, assignments use the :=, second. you cannot assign GroupName ({AR_InvoiceHistoryHeader.ShipVia}) a value. But you can have a formula (in most cases) for a group. Maybe something like this,

if {AR_InvoiceHistoryHeader.ShipVia}="UPS GRD"
then "UPS GROUND"
else {AR_InvoiceHistoryHeader.ShipVia}
