Default Re: Ampersand in external data file

Sometimes I have a hard time realizing where a FusionPro issue ends and where a MarcomCentral issue starts.

Either way...the UntaggedDataField code worked!

I really appreciate all your back and forth with me.

Thank you again.

Default Re: Ampersand in external data file

Can you try this
returnStr = '';

if(FusionPro.Composition.isPreview == true || FusionPro.inValidation == true)

numRecsExtDF = externalDF.recordCount;

for (recordWalker=1; recordWalker <= numRecsExtDF; recordWalker++)
if (ReplaceSubstring(externalDF.GetFieldValue(recordW alker, 'Facility'), "&amp;", "&") == Field("Facility"))
returnStr += (ReplaceSubstring(externalDF.GetFieldValue(recordW alker, 'Facility'), "&amp;", "&");

return returnStr;
