lotus notes  4.6/r5

what I need:
I have a field that is a radiobutton - editable   with 2 options...

Off-Site/Desktop | Off-Site/Desktop
On-Site | On-Site


If a person selects   "On-Site"

I need another field("SiteProjectManager_1")  to change a value called   "JIM PARKER"
SiteProjectManager_1 -  a "Text"-computed for display....

I currently already have this in the "Value" for  "SiteProjectManager_1"

@If(ProjectSize = "";@Return("");@Success);
@If(ProjectSize ="20-200" ;"David Thomas";ProjectSize ="501-1000" | ProjectSize ="1001-2500"|ProjectSize = "2500+";"Tom Hobbs";"Dale West")

Thanks

Do you mean that you want a second field to be computed, with a value that depends on the value of your radio button field?

Make the second field a computed field, with formula @If(RadioButtonField="On-Site"; "Jim Parker"; "Lady Penelope")

Set the options in the first field to Refresh fields on keyword change (in the field's Properties box)

no the same field:

The first field is :  "WorkRequestType"(radiobutton)   if its value gets changed to "On-Site"

I want the second field :  "SiteProjectManager_1"  changed to "   "Lady Penelope"

but as stated above I already have code in the  "Value" property in "SiteProjectManager_1"
I did not know if what I'm trying to do would interfere with this other code ?

Thanks

Ah, okay, get it. The current formula will always overwrite a value you put in it from elsewhere. It may be the easiest way to modify your formula, like this:

@If(WorkRequestType="On-Site"; "Lady Penelope"; ProjectSize = ""; ""; ProjectSize ="20-200" ;"David Thomas";ProjectSize ="501-1000" | ProjectSize ="1001-2500"|ProjectSize = "2500+";"Tom Hobbs";"Dale West")

Check if this is really what you want, because the value will be set to "Lady Penelope" whatever the value of the ProjectSize field.
