Can I add more then one mask item on the data collection ?

Hi,

I have a requirement, for example as follows.

ex.

Data collection: DC01

Parameter 1: P1 and Type is text.

P1 parameter just only allow two values, "AB" or "CD".

Data collection's mask can do that? If not, any good soultion can do that?

thanks!

    Hi Cary,

    Not possible.

    Use Boolean type once you have only 2 options.

    • Hi,

      There might be the case to use Formula to interpret the input value to one of 3 possible options.

      Though, you can consider the easier approach:

      - set the parameter type to Numeric;

      - set MIN = 1;

      - set MAX = 3;

      - set Mask = #.

      This implies that only 1, 2, or 3 can be entered.

      In Data Collection Prompt, you can decribe which number corresponds to which colour.
