If field is Null

If field is Null

If field is Null

If a field is null, I want to replace it with "In Transit" else the field. I have tried various syntax to no avail. The "In Transit" does not appear in the report for blank warehouse city.

I have Default Values For Nulls selected
Formula below:
if isnull({IM_Warehouse.WarehouseCity})then "In Transit" else {IM_Warehouse.WarehouseCity}

Can you please assist? Thanks very much.

RE: If field is Null

Are you certain that the field is null?
You can change the formula to account for spaces/blanks that are not null like this:
if isnull({IM_Warehouse.WarehouseCity})OR TRIM({IM_Warehouse.WarehouseCity})="" then "In Transit" else {IM_Warehouse.WarehouseCity}

RE: If field is Null

Thank you so much. I used the OR TRIM syntax and it works.

RE: If field is Null

I have also used the len(textfield) = 0 to check for NULL (got that from someone else). Sometimes a text string from the DB is not evaluated as NULL
