Text List Separator


This setting controls how Text Lists are formatted when returned. By default, text lists will be on separate lines when inserted into the email.

When lookups are used in other look-ups e.g. Formula, a Carriage Return/Line Feed is not suitable. Therefore a different separator can be used.

Testing Lookups


You can test your lookups using the Test Lookup button. This will send an e-mail to yourself. This e-mail will be processed by the application as it passes through the Exchange server and the look-up is evaluated.
