Good Morning, I’m a bit confused with a microflow I have. Basically if the project code is left blank then I want it to update the project code field with N/A. It works when I create a new document and press save (which initiates the microflow) it puts’s the N/A in the field. However if I go in to edit the object and delete the project code and select save, it then doesn’t pick it up as being empty and doesn’t input the N/A. Any idea why that would be? Edit button goes to the same page as the New button.
I suspect your ProjectCode is a String with no characters, rather than empty. Try changing the test to this
$Minutes/ProjectCode != empty and trim($Minutes/ProjectCode) != ''
Jessica, Robert’s answer is correct, but just so you know, the “trim” function also turns an empty into ‘’ so the following is more concise and works just as well:
trim($Minutes/ProjectCode) != ''
This appears to be Mendix best practice as well, as it’s what any auto-generated code will insert for you when checking if a string is empty.
