Why is "unknown" printed when there is no data?

Recommended Posts

How do I not print "unknown" when there is no data?

Applies to: TMG


Answer: When dates, places or other data are left blank in a tag, most default sentences recognize that the field is blank and skip over it. But Custom Tags and Sentences print that the data is unknown. To have the Report Writer skip over blank fields, make sure the variable for the blank field in the Tag or Witness Sentence is marked as conditional: To make the variable conditional, add angle brackets around the standard variable. For example, if the date variable "[D]" produces "unknown date" when the Date field is blank, change the variable in the Sentence to "".
