How to compare values between two columns?


Recommended Posts

Hi Forum,

Is it possible to format values conditionally when comparing data between 2 columns? 

For example, IF Column A > Column B THEN Column C = "Yellow"

It appears as if you can only conditionally format data with static values - Column A > 20 THEN "Red" for example.

Yes, it is possible.  To achieve this, follow the steps on Jaspersoft Studio:

1. Create New Style. On the outline window, right-click style and select Create Style. Afterwards, Right-click the newly created Style then select Create Conditional Style.

2. Change Backcolor Setting. On properties window, under appearance. Select the appropriate back color.

3. Set the condition. Ensure <NO CONDITION SET> under your new style is selected. Back to the properties window, under style tab, place the condition on Conditional Expression field. i.e: $F{ROW_POSITION}.compareTo( $F{MAP_TYPE}) >  0

4. Set TextField Style. Select the text field you want to apply the style. On the properties window, under Advance tab, On Style setting which is under the graphic property, type in the name of the custom style you made.

Let me know if this works for you! :)
