Can we make a field "B" visible only if a specific value is selected in field "A"

Hi,

Can we make a field "B" visible only if a specific value is selected in field "A".

Example: field "A" is drop down list with values "X", "Y", "Z". If user select a value "Y" from field A, then field "B" which is a text filed should be visible to user and its should be mandatory field.

Can this be achieved?

If you are in PPM 7.5 and above it is possible, If you are on PPM 7.1 then we can do some workarounds.

Please have the Field B Mandatory and prefilled with some value '123'.

When the user Selects 'Y' in Field A, then make the Field B blank by writing the following rule Query.

Select '','' from dual

When the user choose 'X' or 'Z' then B will contain '123' if they choose 'Y' then User need to enter value in B because value will be cleared.

Hi Mahendra,

I made Field B Mandatory and prefilled it with '123'.
Also, I have set the rule such that when user Selects 'Y' in Field A, then Field B is blank. When the user choose 'X' or 'Z' then B will contain '123'.

Now, we are facing issues with old ITG's, since Field B is mandatory, we are unable to save the ITG's even if Field A values are 'X' and 'Z'.

Could you please advise on this please.
