It's the ignore next character-character. If you type

Case(isempty(Mod CatA),"","\\"&Mod CatA)


you should be fine.

I believe "\\" & Mod CatA, without the case statement, will give the exact same result as long as you keep "do not evaluate if all referenced fields are empty. " checked (bottom left calculation dialog).

Mod () is a function in Filemaker. Consider avoiding function names in field names to prevent confusion.
