Can someone explain the formula below?

 

if isnull([Fund]) then [TNA Latest
month-end ($mil)] else [Row-1:ShareClass] endif

 

Particularly the "month-end ($mil)" portion.

 

Thank you

@shawnbres Notice that "TNA Latestmonth-end ($mil)" appears between square brackets. That means the entire string is actually the name of the field. If you look at it in a browse tool you won't see the entire field name because it's too long to fit in the column width. If the field was named "X" instead of "TNA Latestmonth-end ($mil)" then the formula would be:

 

if isnull([Fund]) then [X] else [Row-1:ShareClass] endif
