Add this calculation in the auto-enter option of calculated value for the field "chief complaint":
Substitute ( YourCheckBoxField ; ¶ ; ", " )
Also uncheck the box: "Do not replace existing value of field( if any )"
it did not work the way i want… it just showed yes in front of "chief complaint" and not YourCheckBoxField, moreover incase i check two fields it still showed no change.
"moreover incase i check two fields it still showed no change."
A field, formatted as checkbox, still is a single field. You could select more than one box and the result is a list of elements.
So, creating a new text field ( or a calculated field ) with the given formula, you'll see the result you wish.
ray am sorry kindly explain me a bit more...
i have done it as follows
1) Made text field by the names
on the form have defined them as checkbox style with values as yes / no
2) Now i made a field
Chief compliant in which for calculation auto enter have written
Substitute ( Caries; ¶ ; ", " ) +
Substitute ( checkup ; ¶ ; ", " ) +
Substitute ( pain ; ¶ ; ", " ) +
Substitute ( mobileteeth ; ¶ ; ", " ) +
Substitute ( cleaning ; ¶ ; ", " )
in which have double clicked on the field to get checkup, caries, pain etc
3) now what i want is when i click on press checkup , pain, caries
it should autoenter "checkup, pain, caries" in the chief complaint field
kinldy let me know where am i going wrong
If you have so many field, the calculation must be:
If ( caries ; "caries" ) ;
If ( checkup ; "checkup" ) ;
If ( pain ; "pain" ) ;
If ( mobileteeth ; "mobileteeth" ) ;
If ( cleaning ; "cleaning" )
¶ ; ", "
