Stripping Quotes/Commas in OnSaveText

edited May 2017 in RAP
I'd like to remove all formatting (quotes and commas) when I save report
data to a text file. OnSaveText looks like the best place to do this
but it appears StringReplace is not implemented in RAP;


Id like to do something like -

Text := StringReplace(Text,'"','',[]);


What's the easiest way to remove the formatting while the data is being
saved to file if it can't be done with StringReplace in RAP ?


Delphi 2007 / RB Server 12.04 / Oracle 12C

    Hi Jon,

    I will add StringReplace to our list of possible enhancements for RAP.

    Currently you can create a pass-thru function that calls StringReplace
    in Delphi. See the RAP demos for pass-thru function examples.

    Another option might be to implement an internal routine in RAP that
    performs a string replace using the existing Pos and Copy routines
    available in RAP.

    Hi Jon,

    Please disregard my previous post. StringReplace was added to RAP for
    RB 15 so it is available for the latest version of ReportBuilder.

    I apologize for the confusion.
