Escape Sequence

I want to move the data from a text field into another text field without overwriting the text in the latter one, but use a paragraph or carriage return. What escape sequence do I use in the database rule? Attached screen shot shows you how I want to move the data and insert a carriage return after "My Test".

Thank you.

Re: Escape Sequence

Hi Rita,

you need to use a DB rule data update. Select the field to be updated (target field) and in the section to set the value select "Function) 3rd radio button and select concatenation.

You can use this to concatenate one field with the other. You also need a concatenation for the carraige return.

To do this you will need to select "value" then double click on "Fixed Value" and enter a carraige return (or 2) in the pop up box.
