User-defined Text Message Code Not Working
« on: September 14, 2006, 12:45:30 pm »
In general, my message codes are working.  I tried putting !fname and !remove for example and they show up fine.  But then I tried making a user-defined text message code called !footer

And this one doesn't work.  When I preview the email it shows up exactly as "!footer" and not the text I want in its place.

I made the code global.  I checked typos (i named it "footer" put it in my message as "!footer" and it shows up in the preview email as "!footer")

ANy ideas?

Thanks!

I've also had this problem, it seems to work ONLY if you choose 'Global Codes', and ONLY if you stick to the similar formats, for example if there is a global code like this: !date1, then you can make one like this: !date4 and it will work, but if you name it something like !mydatecode it will not work?

Hope you can fix this DW... along the way while you're working on other things...
Thanks,
