Splitting Data Using a Delimiter

Katherine shared this question 11 months ago
Answered

In our reports we have a field that is populated by a picklist multiple so the data in that field comes through as ["Value 1", "Value 2"]. Is there a way to separate the data in that field so it populates as 2 rows instead of 1? E.g. Value 1 in the first row and then Value 2 in the 2nd row?

Hi Priya,

We're using version 8.0.11.1 and it's just a normal field coming from our source data, not a calculated field.


Thanks,

Hello Katherine,

I hope you are doing well.

Unfortunately, this is not possible to separate the data in that field so data populates as 2 rows instead of 1. To split the source data you may change this from your database. Please revert back if you have any further queries we are happy to assist.
