I am using office 365 .and I have a SharePoint 2010 workflow . I need to replace a string which is longer than 255. I am planning to do a Proof of Concept to confirm this works .
Is Splitting the string using dictionary and Join them using the join action work in sharepoint 2010 workflow.
The replace action is missing in 2010
Do you have any articles which I can use for the splitting and joining action actions.
You can do it using Workflow Actions Pack and SharePoint 2013 Workflows, please see example below:
Thank you for the reply.
I have two lists
List A Car where the workflow is
List B Car details . It has a multiline column which has is longer than 255. The column contains text that needs to be replaced e.g [model] [enginetype] etc.
I cannot assign it to a local string as it has limitation of 255 .
a) Can I assign the value from car details list to a dictionary value
b) I can use the split action to split the dictionary but ,how do I replace the values in the Dictionary. How do i know how many parts the dictionary has split the string into. Log to history for dictionary does not work.
Also I have tested long string in set workflow variable, in my case it works perfectly.
Please see proof of concept below:
You can’t use log to history with long string but you can use variable.
