Keychain Expression

I’m trying to use a simple keychain expression that checks the value of a boolean and returns yes or no to the report. When I run the report, the expression doesn’t seem to evaluate. I’ve placed it below.

@manual_entry == “true”?“Yes”:“No”@

I’ve tried testing for both “true” and “1” with no success. This seems like a bug. I’m using version 7.9.5.

I am having similar issues but with basic arithmetic rather than ternary operators.

‘+’ concatenates ints, ‘-’ returns N/A with ints, ‘*’ returns N/A with ints

My mistake, the person that made our database apparently entered everything in as a varchar

To clarify, I’m reading a value from a SQL database that is a “bit” type. When I run the report without the expression, the values “true” and “false” are returned.

Try a “1” but without any quotes.

I’ve tried that as well with no success. Yes is returned every time with the data source changing between true and false.

Perfect. That worked. Thanks!

I’m thinking this example needs to be added to the documentation. I was tripped up by this same thing a few weeks ago.

I was about to chime in, but you beat me to it. :slight_smile:
