Hi All,

 

I have InfoPath form with an Nintext workflow attached.  In the workflow I have an update xml action with a setting of "Replace Node Content"  I am replacing the value with a workflow variable from a free text box.  If someone adds a "&" to the text box the update XML action fails.  Is there a way round this? The error we get is - "An error occurred while parsing EntityName. Line 1...."

 

Eg this is what I am replacing the node with:

------------------------------

{WorkflowVariable:User_Comments}

Submitted Comments - {WorkflowVariable:user}({Common:CurrentDate})

------------------------------

 

Thanks
