Check for character


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the best way to check for a character?


I'm looking for an apostrophe ( ' ) at the beginning of a variable (years attended) that are being input by csv. In single record they get typed in '12-'15 but when uploaded in batch, excel will sometimes remove the initial apostrophe (due to it being a command in the software).


I'd like the rule to check for the apostrophe and return the variable if there is one and return ' + variable if there isn't.


I am thinking that this would have to be an OnRecordStart rule, but other than that I am a little lost.


Thanks for any and all help!
