How to create a single field that is dependent on various other fields?

Hi,

I have a request with 6 fields - 5 of which are Yes/No. The 6th field is also a Yes/No and the value is Yes if any of the first 5 fields is set to Yes.

Can someone share with me how to configure this dependency rule?

thanks.

Try creating a rule for field 1 if = Yes, set field 6 to Yes. Repeat for fields 2 through 5. Then create a sixth rule depending on all of fields 1 - 5 = No and set field 6 to no. When you have multiple dependancy fields, they are supposed to be ANDed together. Fields 1 - 5 will need to be drop down lists as I do not think radio buttons will work as dependant fields. Although I have created a field as a yes/no drop down and after creating a rule with it as a dependant, changed it back to a radio button and it worked (at 6.0). I have not tried again since moving to 8.0.
