If statement with multiple tests?

Builder

Is it possible to do something like this? It would make my life a whole lot easier if this can be done, or at least something like it...

eval if(((TimeTaken>15) AND ((Termination_Cause=="016") OR (Termination_Cause=="017"))),1,0)

When I try it I get an error stating that the expression is malformed. Any advice is appreciated.

You're not far off

eval foo=if((TimeTaken>15) AND (Termination_Cause=="016" OR Termination_Cause=="017"),1,0)

You should probably post your whole search, there are might be some extra parenthesis in there.

Note that eval takes the form:

eval <my_field> = <my_eval_expression>

Also, I think you can use searchmatch() here more efficiently:

eval case=searchmatch("TimeTaken>15 AND (Termination_Cause="16" OR Termination_Cause="17")")

If case=true, then the event matches the condition.
