DATA TAGS and IF expressions


The Hamma

Question

I cannot get an IF expression to work in the Data Tag.  What am I doing wrong? I am working with a Data Tag linked to a Space and and I tried the example directly from the help guide and it does not work.  It only prints the formula in the tag.

Ok next issue.  I can make two options work with the YES@CONDITION:NO .  But when I try to divide space number field with a number that I placed in the user field it only displays it displays it as text. 

 

Input

#Space#.#Area##doc area_3_0#/#Space#.#11_User-Def Info 2#

or

#Space#.#Area##doc area_3_0#/#Space#.#11_User-Def Info 2##VAL#

or

#Space#.#Area##doc area_3_0#/#Space#.#11_User-Def Info 2##INT#

 

Output 

100/15 instead of 6.66

 

How do I force the tag to read #Space#.#11_User-Def Info 2# as a number rather than text?
