Tech Notes:
Family member phone numbers are calculated in the fields below using this formula. The connector cannot use formulas for repeating sections, so the calculation has to be done here instead of in the connector.

Each formula follows the same logic, but per phone type. This is evaluating:
If phone fields are blank, then blank.
If Phone Type = Work, then Phone
If Phone Type <> Work and Additional Phone Type = Work, then Additional Phone

if(FamilyMemberPhoneType==''){''}else{if(FamilyMemberPhoneType=="Work"){FamilyMemberPhone}else{if(FamilyMemberAddPhoneType=="Work"){FamilyMemberAddPhone}else{""}}}
