Help with formula

What is wrong with this?
if ({@DBSCheck}) = 'No' then 'NA' else ({MembersDetails.DBS Expiry Date})

it says a string is required after else

Hi,

Your else condition seems to be returning a date data type as the field suggests.
You need to typecast the date to a string using cStr({MembersDetails.DBS Expiry Date}) or cStr({MembersDetails.DBS Expiry Date}, <required date format for e.g MM/dd/yyyy>)

Hope that helps.

Hi
I have modified the formula to
if ({@DBSCheck}) = 'No' then 'NA' else cStr({MembersDetails.DBS Expiry Date})

It partially works
what do I need to add to only see dd/mm/yyy  not any hours

Use this:

if ({@DBSCheck}) = 'No' then 'NA' else cStr({MembersDetails.DBS Expiry Date}, 'dd/MM/yyyy')
