I'm sending a mail using automation studio. In the mail content I included this line of AMPscript:


After sending, nothing has changed inside the data extension. I didn't find any errors in preview and the mail is sent succesfully.

I have no clue why the AMPscript is not working.

  • Based on FactSalesHeaderSurrkey you need update InvoiceSentDate ? – pkharries Jun 13 '18 at 9:36

    Based on the code, I am assuming you want the InvoiceSentDate to be updated. Is this showing as blank in the DE, even after preview/send or is there already an existing default value that is not changing? – Gortonington Jun 13 '18 at 13:06
  • That's correct. It is showing as blank in the DE. Before and after send. – Edwin van der Palen Jun 14 '18 at 10:37

use like this

set @FactSalesHeaderSurrkey='somevalue'

based on this one @FactSalesHeaderSurrkey it will update
