Can't Set "Other FAX" Contact Field
« on: March 02, 2011, 01:15:52 PM »
Hi Melinda et al.

I'm implementing the Outlook Manipulator plug-in and I'm getting an "Invalid field name passed" error when trying to set the "Other FAX" contact field.

I went back and modified the "Add/Update Contact Record(s) to Outlook" script in the Advanced_Demo file and added 2 script steps:

Set Variable [$result; Value:PCEM_SetFieldData ( "Other FAX" ; Contacts::Business Phone ) <--This should work. Why doesn't it?
Set Variable [$result; Value:PCEM_SetFieldData ( "Other Phone" ; Contacts::Business Phone ) <-- This works.

"Other FAX" is one of the supported field names listed in the plug-in documentation. I've double checked the spelling of "Other FAX" several times.

How do I get this to work?

Instead of “Other FAX”, try the field name “Other Fax”.  Lower case on the “ax”.
In the functions guide we have it written as "Other Fax".  Currently it is best to treat the functions guide as case sensitive.
