Substituting the ' punctuation

Recommended Posts

To export my data to the web I need to substitute: ' with '

example: I'm Michele, becomes I'm Michele.

Apparently filemaker doesn't understand my calculation:

Substitute(detail_user, "'", "'")

Because nothing changes. How can I make this calculation work? The version I'm working with is FM5.0.

Thank you for reading and eventually answering my question.

Hi Michele,

Your calculation Substitute(detail_user, "'","'") works for me. Do you have Smart Quotes on? If so, turn it off in the Document Preferences.

Really weird, I've turned them off and still the calculation doesn't work.

Hmm..

Nono, my mistake, just had to refresh. Great. Thanks for the answer.
