Hi friends, trying to figure out a way to dynamically pit two pieces of data against each other and see if they match, as opposed to “does {data} match {text I am statically inputting here}”?

My goal is that I am looking at two different orders from the same email address and seeing if the product name is the same. If the product name is the same, it will stop. If the product names are different, it will continue on (to make a new record for a new order).

 

Thanks for your help!

Hi @YFSupport!

If you’re not familiar with Code steps you can also use Formatter by Zapier, and the Spreadsheet-Style Formula function.

You can go here and then in the video at the top of the page, skip to about 2:20 and you’ll see an example of how to compare whether two values match, then output specific values for true and false.

Hope that helps!
