Field names in XML: CS vs. DB/WebPublisher

by Peter Tyrrell Thursday, November 02, 2006 2:39 PM

Tip: avoid spaces in field names.

When a field is referenced in WebPublisher XML, any space in the field name is replaced. In DB/Text WebPublisher XML, the space is replaced by a hyphen: "-". In CS WebPublisher XML, the space is replaced by an underscore: "_".

Thus, when converting an existing DB/Text Webpublisher XML-based service to CS, if the service expects field names with hyphens, things tend to go "boom crumple bang squish".

Reminder: avoid spaces in field names.
