Hi

Directly related to this post
http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/MS-SharePoint/Q_28172317.html

How can I mix straight text "A new Request has been submitted" in the subject line of the Email Submit form to also include a value from one of the fields on the form?

So something like "A new Request has been submitted for %COMAPNYNAME%" Where %COMPANYNAME% is a field on the form?

Thanks
Mark

use the Concat() function in your email subject line.

so your value will look something like this:
Concat("A new Request has been submitted for ", <company name field>)

(definitely use the function builder for this though)

Hi

Thanks for the heads up.

Tried that. Using the function builder and when I try to verify this:
'concat("A New SharpOWL Request has been submitted " Company Name,) ' (note the "Company Name" field is generated by function builder, as perhere:
 using function builder
I get:
'Expected value type: ,

Actual value: name
concat("A New SharpOWL Request has been submitted " -->dfs:dataFields<--/my:SharePointListItem_RW/my:CompanyName,)' see error
Any ideas?

Thanks
Mark
