    Just in case 'BKR' is something link ' BKR ' or ' BKR' or 'BKR ', try using:

     

    CASE
    when `Link Agency ID` LIKE '%BKR%' then ''
    else `Link Agency ID`
    END

    Definitely odd. Perhaps there are phantom characters? 

     

    Try this:

    CASE
    when `Link Agency ID` LIKE '%BKR%' then ''
    else `Link Agency ID`
    END

    Otherwise, I might try that beast mode on a clean card, make sure there isnt' a weird browser issue.

  • Here you go:

     

    CASE WHEN `Link Agency ID` <> 'BKR' 
    THEN `Link Agency ID`
    END

    By omitting the ELSE, anything that doesn't match (not equal to BKR, so BKR) will get assigned a NULL value.

     

    Let me know if that wasn't what you were looking for.

  • that didn't seem to work, so what I'm looking for is if link agency id = BKR then show a blank value, else show whatever link agency id is

     

    thanks
