This is the order of operations:
Order of Operations
AMPscript processes functions in this order:
1 HTML Body
2 Text Body
3 Subject Line
Any preheader values reside
at the beginning of the body and process accordingly.
Your regExmatch function is just going to return the match (in rendered HTML in your case), not do the replacements. Your pattern looks fine.
set @regEx = "<(.*?)>"
set @str = "Hello, Chris John,<br><br>John Doe(CP Admin), an assister from Kentucky, is requesting access to your information, including resources, benefits,...
In the case of string like 20201104 the DateParse() function will not be able to directly convert this string and use the FormatDate() function.
So your only option is to divide the string into parts using Substring() and stitch them back together using Concat() to recreate the formatting you need.
Create variables extracting the 3 date parts you ...
It happens because + equates to a space when the email address is URL encoded.
Your custom preference center will need to be updated to replace all spaces with + characters.
emailAddress = emailAddress.replace(" ","+");
set @emailAddress = replace(@emailAddress," ","+")
Short answer is that it should, but it doesn't.
I am going off assumptions as I have no definitive proof, but even attempting to use the example in the official docs does not work.
using this data:
When coding AMPScript using a Shared Data Extension in an Enterprise 2.0 account, you add the prefix "ENT." to the data extension name.
I dont know if you want to display the link or if it should be inside a but usually i would go for something with concat or redirect (depending on the use case)
%%=Concat('http://www.website.com?utm_source=sfmc&utm_medium=',IIF(NOT EMPTY(Variable1), Variable1, ""))=%%
You can't execute neither SSJS nor Ampscript clientside.
My best advice to you would be to create an JSON Code Resource in Cloud Pages, populating it with your code. This code is executed when the Code Resource URL is called, which should be done from your onChange() function. You will be able to populate the JSON response with e.g. status of code execution.
Yes, this is most certainly possible! To accomplish this, you would output your Server-side variables the same as you would in HTML - via inline declarations or using Output() (AMPScript) or Write() (SSJS).
When using SSJS you canuse the inline declaration of <ctrl:var name="myVar" />(see my blog post here for some more detailed information ...
Can probably handle this with some DatePart and DateAdd footwork. Something like below:
SET @date = NOW()
SET @currentDay = DatePart(@date,"D")
IF @currentDay < 20 THEN
SET @month = DatePart(@date,"monthName")
SET @month = DatePart(DateAdd(@date,1,"M"),"monthName")
Not sure I fully understand your use case, but this will work if you want to trim the 0 just if the string starts with 0 and replace it with 98:
var @num, @repl
set @num = "0123012345"
if indexOf(@num, "0") == 1 then
set @repl = Concat("98",Substring(@num,2,Length(@num)))
I've got below response from support:
Due to the changes in Authentication support that has taken place
over the last couple of releases (Oauth 1.0 to 2.0) the Authentication
header is no longer supported (technically is was never officially
supported, which is why the AMPScript function returns an error).
Recommendation is to use different header to pass ...
Output the @ro variable and double check its output in your journey setup, not email studio.
Probably @ro is empty in your Journey data extension but filled in your test DE, which could explain the behaviour.
A typical root cause could be that the Journey Entry Source fieldname is different from "Retention_Owner__c", which you assume in your code.
You can fetch the content of the personalised email, retrieving it from VAWP URL, using following code:
IF _messagecontext == "SEND" AND jobid > 0 THEN
set @HTML = HTTPGet(view_email_url)
You can use LookupRows in combination with RowCount, like this:
set @today = Format(Now(),"yyyy-MM-dd")
set @rows = LookupRows("DataExtension","Date", @today)
set @rowCount = rowcount(@rows)
if @rowCount > 1 then
set @Subject= "Hello"
set @Subject = "Thank You"
You need to concat it, like this:
set @profilecenter =
When using it in the href, remember to use redirectTo:
<a href="%%=RedirectTo(@profilecenter)=%%">Your profile</a>
You’re using ContentAreaByName, which is is only for use with Classic Content areas. It does not retrieve content stored in Content Builder. To retrieve content from Content Builder by name, use the ContentBlockByName function.
Replacing the function name in your code and adding correct folder path should ...
The InsertDE function is only meant to be for Emails, for landing pages use insertData or UpsertData
You'll need to set the appropriate Primary key in your DE to ensure unique records. With insertData if theres a PK violation the insert will fail and you'll get a error. With the UpsertData depending on your primary key only 1 row will be inserted/updated.
I have been using this approach to host my Cloud Page code in a private GitHub repo. You should create this private repo, along with a personal token, so Cloud Pages can fetch the code while this is still hidden from curious eyes by not being public.
In the Cloud Page itself, you need to define where it should look for the code, using this approach:
You could inject everyone who fills out the form into the journey, and as the first step, use a decision split to check whether checkValue matches the criteria or not:
if not, they exit the journey
if it matches, they continue the journey
You need to make sure that the Data Extension you’re using for the form is a part of an Attribute Group in Contact ...
I find this kind of stuff easier to do via SSJS than AMPscript (plus with SSJS you can run it in a script activity instead of a CloudPage).
As a note, Content Builder emails can only be retrieved via REST. This will require a package to be created in your BU to be able to gather a token for REST calls.
Here are two functions I use when retrieving emails ...
You don’t need the %% signs inside of an AMPscript block. This is the correct synthax:
VAR @SubscriberKey, @EmailAddress
set @EmailAddress = emailaddr
set @SubscriberKey = Concat('TEST_', @EmailAddress)
But you don't actually need the above block - you pass the value in a hidden form field if you just include the following inline AMPscript string ...
You could build a rowset using BuildRowSetFromString() to test the number of commas:
SET @rs = BuildRowSetFromString(myField,',')
SET @rowCount = RowCount(@rs)
IF @rowCount == 1 THEN
SET @commas = 0
SET @commas = Subtract(@rowCount,1)
Number of Commas: %%=v(@commas)=%%
An array is a list of ordered, unnamed elements. An object, also commonly called a Map, is a collection of named, unordered elements. So, a variable that has FirstName, LastName, and Email would be an object, while a variable that has the values "apple", "pear" and "orange," in that order, would be an array. A row in a Data ...
If you mean from the sendable, you can utilize personalization strings. This includes any fields you use when sending from a data extension.
Say your sendable DE looks like this:
SubscriberKey | EmailAddress | FirstName | LastName
You would use the following personalization strings:
%%SubscriberKey%% | %%EmailAddress%% | %%FirstName%% | %%...
Unfortunately, the Attributes part of the SOAP Object Subscriber is not retrievable, see below snippet from a Describe call to the object:

You can't achieve this in Ampscript. If you are planning to send out an email from a journey then you can make use of wait by attribute activity. I have written an article on How to send an email with respect to Country TimeZone. Please feel free to have a look at it.
Here is the quick overview:
Create a data extension with all states and their timezones. ...
I am going to assume that the products are fairly simply defined. I am also going to assume that you know how to use the BuildRowSetFromXML function as you stated you already have a loop that writes all products ordered.
It honestly just sounds like you need a conditional in there around the output section to validate the product.
FOR @i=1 TO ...
I think this is better solved by just using SSJS. AMPScript RegEx capability is not as robust as is allowed in SSJS, so it would require quite a bit of extra effort to accomplish a simple task in SSJS.
For instance, you could solve your problem in SSJS by doing below:
var str = 'a222. / --0011';
var numberPattern = /\d+/g;
var res = str.match(numberPattern)....
