eval wildcards - using match in a case statement

Path Finder

Hi ,

I used match command in eval wildcards like below: shop_tags have many tags, A and B just two of them to identify different products.

eval products = case (match(product_tags,"A"), "a", match(shop_tags,"B"), "B")

However, I have product C, but it has two different types: e & f. I want to create a new name as C_old if it matches C & e, C_new if it matches C & f. I am not sure how to match two labels at the same time. I was trying:

eval products = case (match(product_tags,"A"), "a", match(shop_tags,"B"), "B",match(shop_tags,"C" & "e"), "C_old",match(shop_tags,"C" & "f"), "C_new")

but it is not working.

Can anyone help us to match two labels at the same time? Thanks very much.

Do these guys work together? Or just cheating on homework together 🙂


They're clearly not working together 🙂
