I'm trying to write an expression to determine if data exists in the Industry 1, Industry 2 or Industry 3 attributes.  I wrote the following expression to load a 1, 2 or 3 in a new attribute Number of Industries.  Where I have "TEXT", I need an expression to determine if text data exists...

 

if(INDUSTRY3==TEXT,3,if(INDUSTRY2==TEXT,2,1))

 

I'm a newbie so any help is appreciated.

    I also tried this but it also didn't work...

     

    if(contains(INDUSTRY3,""),3,if(contains(INDUSTRY2,""),2,1))

    Have you tried putting your strings into quotation marks?

    Hi FBT,

     

    Can you provide an example for "putting strings in quotation marks"?  I'm new and not sure how to do this.

     

    Thanks!

    Like this from your example above:

     

    if(INDUSTRY3=="TEXT",3,if(INDUSTRY2=="TEXT",2,1))
