Skip conditions

Condition Description
The table is emptyThis option skips the remaining actions in the table if the dataset is empty at the point of the Skip action.
The table is NOT emptyThis option skips the remaining actions in the table if the dataset is NOT empty at the point of the Skip action.
The condition is true for EVERY rowThis option skips the remaining actions in the table if the entered condition evaluates to TRUE for every row in the dataset at the time of the Skip action.
The condition is true for ANY rowThis option skips the remaining actions in the table if the entered condition evaluates to TRUE for any row in the dataset at the time of the Skip action.

For either of the "condition" options, select how EasyMorph will react if the condition refers to a field, but the table has no rows (e.g. data) at the time of the Skip action. Options: Skip anyway or Do NOT skip.


Examples

In the table below, the condition of the Skip on condition action is not fulfilled (evaluates to FALSE), therefore the following actions have been executed and their pictograms look usual.










Using the same table, but this time the condition is fulfilled (evaluates to TRUE). The actions after the Skip on condition action are skipped.











Notice 2 things:

  • The small “fast forward” icon over the skipped actions’ pictograms.
  • The icon of the “Skip actions on condition” action looks different when the condition is fulfilled.
