Hi all,

Can we use LIKE/Contain string condition in PLD or something similiar ?

Say, if Field1 is like " /star/ Payment /star/ "

PLD does not support SQL. Therefore, there is no parameter accepted. If you need your report with variable, try Query PLD or Crystal Report.

What is your exact requirement?

are you want 'if condition' in PLD? its not possible in PLD.

Try this,

for example:

->> Open your requrie PLD.

->> Create 1 Formula field in PLD and insert the the formula.


Field_XXX =='/star/ Payment /star/ '

->> Create 1 Text field and HardCode the something like 12345 and Link to Formula Field ID.

->> Select the Text Field Link to Field_XXX(Formula Field) in Content Tab on Properties Window.

Save it and run the Print preview.

Thank you for the reply.

Sorry, I meant wildcard.

I did exactly what you have done here -- linking a field to another.

The condition I wanted to set is that if the field contains the word "payment", then show the other field.

I have tried *, %, like etc. Can we do that in PLD?
