Default Unknown Entity

I'm getting an error that I believe is related to the "&" ampersands in my external data.

Incomplete entity definition TROUGH
Unknown Entity &TROUGH; in record 169


From reading other posts, I'm pretty sure I need to insert the TaggedTextFromRaw function in my rule somewhere, so far everywhere I've tried has failed.

HTML Code:
returnStr = '';

if(FusionPro.Composition.isPreview == true || FusionPro.inValidation == true)
{
    Rule("OnJobStart");
}


numRecsExtDF = externalDF.recordCount;

for (recordWalker=1; recordWalker <= numRecsExtDF; recordWalker++)
{
    if (externalDF.GetFieldValue(recordWalker, 'Client No') == Field("Client No"))
    {
        
        returnStr += '<t>' + externalDF.GetFieldValue(recordWalker, 'Service Code') + '<t>' + externalDF.GetFieldValue(recordWalker, 'Service Name') + '<t>' + externalDF.GetFieldValue(recordWalker, 'Current Price') + '<t>' + externalDF.GetFieldValue(recordWalker, 'Price Effective 07/28/2014');
        returnStr += '<br>';
        
    }
}


return returnStr;
Thanks in advance for any help

You could just replace the "&" with "&amp;" in your data and check the "Treat returned strings as tagged text" check box in your rule.

Thanks for the quick response Don.

I was trying to avoid going back to the data, unless I really needed to. I may have to do that if I can't get it to work with the rule. Thanks!

Should be able to use a simple text editor and do a find and replace.

That's probably the way I'll go since I'm on a tight schedule with this. I figured there may be a quicker way to do it in the rule so it would take care of any characters, not just ampersands. Just in case one of the thousands of errors that this 1 records threw, was for another problem character. Thanks again.

Sorry can't help with the rule. I normally do this kind of work in the data since I am not a JavaScript guru!!

The place to use TaggedTextFromRaw is around all the calls to get data from the external data file. Try this:
Code:
if (FusionPro.inValidation)
    Rule("OnJobStart"); // load external data file

var returnStr = "";
var numRecsExtDF = externalDF.recordCount;

for (var recordWalker = 1; recordWalker <= numRecsExtDF; recordWalker++)
{
    if (externalDF.GetFieldValue(recordWalker, 'Client No') == Field("Client No"))
    {
        returnStr += '<t>' + TaggedTextFromRaw(externalDF.GetFieldValue(recordWalker, 'Service Code'));
        returnStr += '<t>' + TaggedTextFromRaw(externalDF.GetFieldValue(recordWalker, 'Service Name'));
        returnStr += '<t>' + TaggedTextFromRaw(externalDF.GetFieldValue(recordWalker, 'Current Price'));
        returnStr += '<t>' + TaggedTextFromRaw(externalDF.GetFieldValue(recordWalker, 'Price Effective 07/28/2014'));
        returnStr += '<br>';
    }
}

return returnStr;

I am a not a Support engineer, and this forum is not a substitute for Support. My participation on this forum is primarily as a fellow user (and a forum moderator). I am happy to provide help and answers to questions when I can; however, there is no guarantee that I, or anyone else on this forum, will be able to answer all questions or fix any problems. If I ask for files to clarify an issue, I might not be able to look at them personally.

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.

return "KbwbTdsjqu!spdlt\"".replace(/./g,function(w){return String.fromCharCode(w.charCodeAt()-1)});
