Hi All,

I have a column with data :

'Lembur@171.00 Jam x@'

I want to separate it into 2 formula :

1. fmlDesc = 'Lembur'
2. fmlQty =  '171.00 Jam x'

How could I do it ?

Thank you.

Try this

fmlDesc
Split({YourField},"@")[1]

fmlQty
Split({YourField},"@")[2]

What does it mean when there is no "@"?

 Do you not want to use that string at all?
   --or--
 Do you want to use the whole string as one thing or the other (fmlDesc or fmlQty)?  Which one?  And then just leave the other part blank?
   --or--
 Do you still want to split the string, but using some other character (not "@") as the delimiter?

If there are no @ there will only be 1 string

You can try this

fmlDesc
Split({YourField},"@")[1]

fmlQty
Local StringVar Array arrStrings;

arrStrings := Split({YourField},"@");
If UBound(arrStrings) >= 2 then
    arrStrings[2]
Else
    "No fmlQty"
