Log fields

Log fields

Log fields allow you to create a summary of your calculations and display it in the Progress Log. To create Log fields, see the following instructions.

Restriction:

The following only applies to Tedds for Word.

Create Log fields

  1. In the Insert ribbon group, click Tedds field.

    The Insert Tedds field dialog box appears, displaying the Input tab.

  2. Click the Log tab.

    The following view appears.

  3. In the Type list, select the type of field which you want to create.
    • Select Simple to add fixed text into the Progress Log.
    • Select Value of variable to add text indicating the value of a variable into the Progress Log.
    • Select Condition to add a different piece of text into the Progress Log depending on whether a condition is met.
    • Select Advanced to add a different piece of text into the Progress Log depending on whether one or more conditions are met.

Create Simple Log fields

  1. In the Text field, type the text that you want to display in the Progress Log.
  2. Click OK.

Create Value of variable Log fields

  1. In the Prefix field, type the text that you want to insert before the value of the variable, if necessary.
  2. Specify the details of the variable.
    1. In the Name or expression field, type the name of the variable, or the expression that defines the value.
    2. In the Value type list, select the type of the value.
      • If the variable is a number, select Number.
      • If the variable is stored as a string, select String.
    3. In the Units field, type the units for the variable.
    4. In the Format list, select the format in which the variable value should be displayed, if necessary.
    5. In the No. of decimal places box, specify the number of decimal places to which the variable value should be displayed.
  3. In the Postfix field, type the text that you want to insert after the value of the variable, if necessary.
  4. Click OK.

Create conditional Log fields

  1. Specify the details of the field.
    1. In the Condition field, specify the condition that you want to test.

      You can specify any of the Tedds for Word logical functions as conditions.

    2. In the Yes field, type the text that will be placed in the Progress Log if the value of the condition is true.
    3. In the No field, type the text that will be placed in the Progress Log if the value of the condition is false.
  2. Click OK.

Create Advanced Log fields

You can assemble Advanced fields using two different approaches. You can either type directly in the Statement field or use Insert buttons to add variable and condition details in the Statement field. Tedds for Word then evaluates the Statement field to create the Advanced field.

Note:

When you create an Advanced Log field, ensure that:

  • All text is surrounded by quotation marks

  • All parts that you want to include in Progress Log are in the Statement field.

  1. Specify the variable details.
    1. In the Name or expression field, type the name of the variable, or the expression that defines the value.
    2. In the Value type list, select the type of the value.
      • If the variable is a number, select Number.
      • If the variable is stored as a string, select String.
    3. In the Units field, type the units for the variable.
    4. In the Format list, select the format in which the variable value should be displayed, if necessary.
    5. In the No. of decimal places box, specify the number of decimal places to which the variable value should be displayed.
  2. To add the variable details into the Log field, click the Insert button next to the No. of decimal places box.
  3. Specify the condition details.
    1. In the Condition field, specify the condition that you want to test.

      You can specify any of the Tedds for Word logical functions as conditions.

    3. In the No field, type the text that will be placed in Progress Log if the value of the condition is false.
