      Hi Alexander,

      When someone submits a new or edit form I want to look at a certain field and find the character “;” and replace it with “; “. I have Javascript code that can do this but I am not clear on how to target this to a specific field in the form. Are you able to provide me some guidance on this?

      Thank you!

      If you look at this thread and find the Do something before the item is saved section you can just use getFieldValue(“Your_field_name”) to get the value to build your new variable with the changes, and setFieldValue(“Your_field_name”, your_variable); to write it back to the field.

      Also note that this works great for Lookup fields. So
      returns the VALUE in the field not just the ID of the item being looked up.
