Anyone know if there is an equivalent to the Filemaker Pro "Case" function? It's kinda like the "IF" function but is simpler to concatenate multiple conditions. It basically says If something is true then do what is specified, if the next thing is, then do that, if the next thing is true, do that, etc.

Here's what I need to do. Take 4 columns and concatenate with a semi-colon between the values, but not string together two semi-colons consecutively. Like:

Phone     Email     Mail -> Phone;Email;Mail
Phone                  Mail -> Phone;Mail
                           Mail -> Mail
              Email    Mail -> Email;Mail

So semi-colons only occur if there's a value present and not at all if there's only one value present.
I hope that makes sense and displays correctly.

I just checked the available functions in Calc. The "Case" function does not appear among them. "Case When" is available in Base database queries though.
