Hello all,

I'm looking for Script that deals with a first name that ends with an S.

I want to add just an apostrophe if the name ends with S.

Else return apostrophe S.

For example First Name is James. Return James' (possessive).

Else return "'s". For example Tony's.

Thanks in advance
-Tony

var str = Field("First Name");

if (str.substr(str.length -1, 1) == "s") str += "'";
else str += "'s"

return str;
