How to make a multiple condition IF statement work?

Motivator

Hi,

This should be easy but for some reason, my brain is making it hard. I'm trying to get a 2-condition IF statement to work and well needless to say not successfully so far.

Here is the synopsis:

If the model of a camera is iCamera2-C then add -20 to the rssiid field, but only if the rssiid field is NOT zero. I've tried multiple different ways of approaching this and I can get one condition to work but not both.

Here is the latest non-working one

eval rssiid=if((cmodel!="iCamera2-C") OR (rssiid=0),rssiid,rssiid+-20)

How about this?

....| eval rssiid=if(cmodel="iCamera2-C" AND rssiid!=0, rssiid+20,rssiid)

no joy 😞 . I had tried that one earlier but tried it again and no luck. Something tells me it has to do with this mvzip/mvexpand thing you helped me with before. Maybe the whole query would help

Try adding this eval before the iCamera2 eval

...| eval rssiid=tonumber(trim(rssiid)) |eval rssiid=if(cmodel="iCamera2-C....."

Got it, using your help on the mvzip as a primer 🙂 . TY!!!
