Label, multiple if statement for text

Hey guys, I'm having real problems with understanding if/switch/multiple if statements 😂


I'm trying to set up a label text so that depending on whether certain quoted words are in a field, it shows the relevant text. My If statement below has been taken but only shows the first one.


If("Analytical Chemistry" in Gallery2.Selected.LabsChosen,"Analytical Chemistry: "&Char(10)&Gallery2.Selected.'Ana-Fulfilment'&Char(10)&Char(10),
("Biochemistry" in Gallery2.Selected.LabsChosen),"Biochemistry: "&Char(10)&Gallery2.Selected.'Biochem-Fulfilment'&Char(10)&Char(10),
("Cell Biology" in Gallery2.Selected.LabsChosen),"Cell Biology: "&Char(10)&Gallery2.Selected.'CB-Fulfilment'&Char(10)&Char(10),
("Microbiology" in Gallery2.Selected.LabsChosen),"Microbiology: "&Char(10)&Gallery2.Selected.'Microb-Fulfilment'&Char(10)&Char(10),
("Molecular Biology" in Gallery2.Selected.LabsChosen),"Molecular Biology: "&Char(10)&Gallery2.Selected.'Molecb-Fulfilment'&Char(10)&Char(10),
("Preparative Chemistry" in Gallery2.Selected.LabsChosen),"Preparative Chemistry: "&Char(10)&Gallery2.Selected.'PrepChem-Fulfilment',

Hey Warren, possibly some wires crossed, been trying to work the function code you gave then realised selecteditems 🙂 It's a single item selection from the gallery, I'm trying to get it to look at the specific strings of words within a single field and if they're there, to display certain text within the label, and if not , not to display the text. There are 6 strings in total I am trying to get it to acknowledge.

HI @Lauren_ ,

Back to basics again - if it is a single value selected, why do you need the two hard returns? Also your initial posted code seems fairly close to the solution except you need

   Gallery2.Selected.xxxx = "Analytical Chemistry",
       . . . . . .

and Or() || between the arguments instead of And() &&
