If ($)

The If code allows you to insert text depending on a condition:

Syntax: [$<value1><op><value2>$<resulttrue>$<resultfalse>$]

If the condition is met, <resulttrue> will be used, otherwise <resultfalse> is used. If <result2> is not defined, an empty string will be used in its place.

Value1, value2 and result can be either a field code or a constant value.

For example, [$[\DOI]=1/1/80$[\OTHER]$] which will compare the value of field DOI against 1/1/80 and if they match, the value of field OTHER will be used.

OperatorMeaning
=True if both values match
!=True if both values do not match
>True if value1 is greater than value2
>=True if value1 is greater than or equal to value2
<True if value1 is less than value2
<=True if value1 is less than or equal to value2

An example of using the if merge code to do simple translations is:

[$[\Plaintiff#1\Name#1\Gender#1]=Female$Sra.$Sr.$]

This will return Sra. if the plaintiff's name is female, otherwise it will return Sr..
