    why is "self" in a conditional formating not working

    HenryRobinson

      My goal is to make a button change color based on a conditional format and if I do not use the self function it works every time. My first line of code below works no problem but the following ones using self are not working.

       

      Residential Structures::Net % Good  ≠ Residential Structures::Net % Good 1 and not IsEmpty ( Residential Structures::Net % Good 1)

       

       

      but I need to copy this same code to multiple fields so I figured I would redo the code using self function  and it stopped working.

       

      Residential Structures::Net % Good  ≠ Self  and not IsEmpty ( Self )

       

      I also simplified it and it still did not work.

       

      Residential Structures::Net % Good  ≠ Self

       

      Residential Structures::Net % Good is a calculation stored as a number and Residential Structures::Net % Good 1 or Self is not a calculation is is stored as a number.

       

      I have ran into a lot of situation that self works and just as many places it dose not work. I finely figured I would ask for help.
