Hi Experts,

I am creating a BRFPlus rule that creates a string of characters using the Formula Expression based on the input variables in Signature. I am not able to find a function in Formula Expression for creating a New Line and then concatenating the rest of the text. Need your help. Thanks.

this is not possible.

However, it depends on where you want to use the string. If the string is used a HTML you can concatenate the corresponding tags in order to enforce a line break. Another option might be to create the single lines of your output as a string and put them into a table with one column where each row corresponds to a line in the output.

So depending on your concrete scenario there should be a solution for that requirement although not directly via a formula function

Best regards

Hi UK,

In the formula expression you may use whatever your consumer can understand as a line break. E.g. you may use \n for this. When passing the string to javascript or so it will be recognized as a line break. As Christian stated in HTML it is the BR element. Hence, you only need to use the concatenate function in the formula to create a string as you need it (your further processing handles it).
