    Hi Experts,

    I would like to know if using Storyteller , can we substitute a part of the text(the text would be coming entirely in RDI) Ex: a date field with a date value from RDI . 






    - The entire text is dynamic including the date field which would come seperately as an individual field.


    Thanks ,

    Hi Sreenivas,

    Have you looked at the eval() function?

    this function replaces variables inside text with the values of these variables.

    In your case you can put a variable on the field where the text comes in (for example $RDIText), then replace the date string xx/xx/xxxx with a date variable, for example with $RDIText = substrrepl($RDIText,"xx/xx/xxxx",$rdiDate);
    After this you can use eval to substitute the date.
    $RDIText = eval($RDIText);
