    Colon character being lost in calculated field

    Asked by NRCsupport on February 15, 2014 at 04:20 AM

    I am trying to build the url for my thankyou page in a calculated field which includes the contents of various fields to be passed to the thankyou page. The url string I want starts with http:// . But when I submit the form the colon after the http is missing.

    I have found a workaround - but I'd like to know why this happens.

    The character may have been filtered per our security changes. The character has lost after the string or tag in your thank you page settings is converted to the value define in your calculation field. Your workaround should work.
