GetValidFileName – XpressDox

The GetValidFileName function removes or replaces illegal characters from a file name

The «GetValidFileName» function will examine a value for characters which are illegal in a file name, and either remove those illegal characters, or replace them with a string supplied as a second argument to the function.

For example, if the data element name Reference contains the string Smith/Jones & Co then «GetValidFileName(Reference,‘-’)» will return the value Smith-Jones & Co. In other words, the character “/” has been replaced with “-”.

The fillpoint «GetValidFileName(Reference,‘’)» will remove illegal file name characters from Reference. Using the above example’s data values, this would return SmithJones & Co.
