Text Box not working

Meteoroid

Untitled.png

I have an analytic app that is reading from a SQL Database.  The workflow pulls the management chain for employees and the Text Box allows the user to enter a specific employees name which will then return that employees management change up to the Chairman.

The Text Box is not working.  What am I doing wrong?

I imagine that the action you are performing is updating the whole expression rather than replacing a specific string (argument).

 

Suppose you have this in the filter:

 

[Last Name] = "LNAME"

In the action configuration, you will want to check the "Replace a specific string:" box and then edit the information (above) to be:

LNAME

This will allow for the substitution of "Frisch" for "LNAME"

Cache was the problem.  Once I cleared it, it worked as expected.  (somewhat confused)

How did you discover it was a cache problem and what did you do to resolve it?

Hi 

 

I have come to the same issue. with my test box are just trying to pass 201706 as a this format. I clicked replace string 201706. but when i enter 201707, it is not update in the gallery.

 

However, if i un-clicked the replace string function, It update the yyyymm format successfully.

 

Why would this happened? I thought they should doing the something?

 

Thanks
