Quick question,

I'm trying to put a value list into a custom dialogue for display... and comma seperate it etc with no luck... i.e.

Let (valueDisplay = Substitute(ValueListItems(Get(FileName);"ValueListName") ; ; ", ") ;

Left(valueDisplay ; Length(valueDisplay) - 2))

Yes i am sure i am using a real value list and it's name is correct. Thanks for any suggestions.

Substitute(ValueListItems(Get(FileName);"ValueListName") ; ¶ ; ", ")

But for goodness sakes, it doesn't work with Value Lists! It worked in vs. 6! And it works with Get(RecordNumber) etc... It doesn't work in vs. 7.0v3 or 8.0v2.

Emmm, Value Lists clean up their own ¶ and it doesn't end up with trailing ',' at all. See attached. If it still isn't working, then we'd need to see your file. It displays in all three places - Title, message, and input message.

Sorry, i was getting my value list formatting confused with user added values... where a user adds value x and a carriage return to a field... sorry. Thanks for the file, maybe i got my syntax wrong or something, ill have a look.

Cheers,
