Title

IF statement with SUBSTITUTE function

Post

 

 

I am sure this is a very easy problem to solve but I am still very new to FM so please bear with me. I am trying to create a calculation that will place a specific variable into a field depending on what variables are in two other fields. 

In the below example I am trying to make the yellow box say something different depending on what is in the blue and red boxes. I think that the best solution would be to use IF statements and SUBSTITUTIONS but I am not sure how to formulate it. 

 

If [Get (Anesthesia Type) = "MAC"]
    Substitute ( Surgery Type ; [ "Chalazion" ; ""] )
Else
[Get (Anesthesia Type) = "Straight Local"]
    Substitute ( Surgery Type ; [ "Chalazion" ; "N/A"] )
End If

I thought it would be something like the above but it is just not working. Any help would be appreciated.
