Logical functions

This section describes functions handling logical operations. All functions can be used in both the load script and in chart expressions.

Information noteBoth IsNum and IsText return 0 if the expression is NULL.


The following example loads an inline table with mixed text and numerical values, and adds two fields to check if the value is a numerical value, respectively a text value.

Load *, IsNum(Value), IsText(Value) Inline [ Value 23 Green Blue 12 33Red];

The resulting table looks like this:

Example 1
Value IsNum(Value) IsText(Value)
23 -1 0
Green 0 -1
Blue 0 -1
12 -1 0
33Red 0 -1
