Functions

Definition

Functions perform a task on the data fed into it, usually producing some sort of data or output. The data fed into a function can be anything, from plaid text to numbers and dates to objects from the report. The results are entirely dependent on what the function has been programmed to do. The most popular functions and function types are described in this section.

Important Concepts

"True" and "False": Some functions simply test whether a piece of data fits a particular condition. This kind of function returns only two values: true, represented by a 1, and false, represented by a 0.
