I need to change the case inside of a calculated field so I can compare it to another field.

Is this possible?

I have 2 fields, one is in lowercase and one is in uppercase. I tried using the case conversion in the menu but it is not making the comparsion.

Name is in upper case

Vendor is in lowercase

I need to compare the Name field to the Vendor field

How can I do this?

Hello Byron Burton,

To change the case inside of a calculated field, you can utilize the formula type as "Freehand SQL". Within this, you can use the "Lower" Keyword before the field name. For ex. Lower(Name), this will convert the text in the "Name" field to lowercase. Please check the below screen recording for your reference:

Please review this and let me know if it resolves your query.

Hello Byron Burton,

Please do not include spaces in the fields. For ex. instead of "Lower(Email Address)" , please use "Lower(EMAILADDRESS)" and then proceed. Please give this a try, and inform me of the outcome.

It did not work

I also tried exporting to SQL and trying the LOWER function there.  Did not work

I tried putting in quotes.  Did not work

I tried putting the sql that I exported into the Free hand SQL because the field names are different.  Did not work

Both did not work*** This is from the SQL

CASE WHEN Lower(sys_case_SYS_USER_ownername.name) = Lower(VW_SYS_PARTY.party_name) THEN 1 END

CASE WHEN Lower(name) = Lower(party_name) THEN 1 END

We are communicating with our vendor.  Yellowfin is non-responsive at this point.  It wont even load.  Perhaps this is the issue.  I will let you know once it is resolved.
