Custom Reports Syntax for custom fields

I am trying to define some custom fields in a report but cannot find a listing anywhere of allowed syntax in custom fields.


For example I have a report where I am trying to return the count of each type of answer to a specific field, something like:


if([C:ETSA Status 0]="8 Approved",1)


but this and many variants I've tried don't seem to work.


Any suggestions on where I might find a syntax guide or answer to this question would be appreciated.

Re: Custom Reports Syntax for custom fields

The ACT! reports use Visual Basic script programming for that.


There is a third party book with comprehensive training information on the ACT! reports, here is the link.
