I keep getting an error "the remaining text does not appear to be part of the formula." I know I'm missing something simple. Thanks
IF {@Print FED} = "X" THEN TRUE
IF {@Print FMED} = "X" THEN TRUE
IF {@Print FSOC} = "X" THEN TRUE
IF {@Print FUTA} = "X" THEN TRUE
IF {@Print SUTA} = "X" THEN TRUE
ELSE FALSE

Try it this way

IF {@Print FED} = "X" THEN TRUE
ELSE IF {@Print FMED} = "X" THEN TRUE
ELSE IF {@Print FSOC} = "X" THEN TRUE
ELSE IF {@Print FUTA} = "X" THEN TRUE
ELSE IF {@Print SUTA} = "X" THEN TRUE
ELSE FALSE

These also work

IF {@Print FED} = "X" THEN TRUE;
IF {@Print FMED} = "X" THEN TRUE;
IF {@Print FSOC} = "X" THEN TRUE;
IF {@Print FUTA} = "X" THEN TRUE;
IF {@Print SUTA} = "X" THEN TRUE
ELSE FALSE

A third way

IF {@Print FED} = "X" OR {@Print FMED} = "X" OR {@Print FSOC} = "X"
   OR {@Print FUTA} = "X" OR {@Print SUTA} = "X" THEN TRUE
ELSE FALSE

All of them worked without errors but the first way in the second post brought back the information I needed.

Thanks
