Some Concatenations having "" and others not

Hello All!

I’m using a formula to concatenate different dates an area was worked on as the record ID. In one tab I have all the offices and all of the associated data with them, and in the other I have a submissions page that’s linked to the office page. My problem is some of them concatenate as “AreaName” - Date and others are AreaName - Date. I have attached some screenshots for a visual.

Thank you for your help!

That means that you have hidden characters somewhere within the area name for those records. So you’ll need to manually cleanup those area names.


Thank you! I had to end up resetting all the names.

For future reference, you could have also used TRIM({Area}) to remove extra spaces at the start and end of the text.

I believe TRIM() will only work for spaces. Last time a client of mine had this problem with quotation marks, there were lots of invisible characters of some sort (that weren’t considered spaces) that were causing this problem.

I get the same issue using the following
IF({_Uniclass System}=BLANK(),{Uniclass Products},{_Uniclass System}) the fields its looking at don’t have “” in them
