Edit feature of 'Run Macro' only display the first word


I have successfully configured the Bob Swift's Run Macro using the following guide (https://bobswift.atlassian.net/wiki/display/SCRP/Script+-+Editable+Paging+Tables) and I now have a quick question.

When I want to edit a row, all the datas are correctly loaded but my description is only displayin the first word. I tried to play with single and double quotes, same problem.

Is anyone else experiencing the same problem as me ?

Sounds like a quoting problem, but it is hard to say without the details. Play around with the quoting some more and then if you are still stuck, open a support issue and attach your wiki markup. Maybe there is something that can be spotted.


Still no luck :(


  , '{run:id=e' , id
  ,   '|buttonPadding=0'
  ,   '|keepRequestParameters=true'
  ,   '|anchor=edit'
  ,   '|titleRun=Edit}'
  ,     '{extract-link:redirect=true}'
  ,       '$page_url'
  ,       '?run_selection=run&run_edit_id=' , id 	
  ,       '&run_edit_name=' , name  
  ,       '&run_edit_project=' , project
  ,       '&run_edit_description=' , description 
  ,       '&run_edit_date=' , date
  ,       '&run_edit_isopen=' , isopen
  ,       '&run_edit_status=' , status
  ,       '&run_edit_highlights=' , highlights
  ,       '&run_edit_pathforward=' , pathforward
  ,       '&run_edit_comments=' , comments
  ,       '&run_selection_hideEdit=false'
  ,       '#$page_anchor_e' , id
  ,     '{extract-link}'
  ,  '{run}'
  , '{table-cell} {table-cell}'
  ,'{run:id=d' , id
  ,   '|buttonPadding=0'
  ,   '|titleRun=Delete}'
  ,     '{sql:dataSource=packagingRDS}'
  ,       'delete from pkgteam.tracking where id = ' , id
  ,     '{sql}'
  ,     '{extract-link:redirect=true}'
  ,       '$page_url?&run_selection=run'
  ,     '{extract-link}'
  ,  '{run}'
  ,'{table-cell}{table-row}{table}') AS "Actions"
  FROM pkgteam.tracking ORDER BY id

and my EDIT function:

update table
      set name = '$name', project='$project', date='$date', description='$description', isopen='$isopen', status='$status', highlights='$highlights', pathforward='$pathforward', comments='$comments'
      where id = $id

I tried to modify this line:

'&run_edit_description=' , description

with 'description', no changes. I also tried to update the SQL update w/o success :(

It is hard to deal with this within the confines of answers, I still suggest you open an issue.

I can't run your sql, so please run the sql to produce a 2 or 3 rows of wiki markup that can be used to view and test with.

Ok, I was confused because you support link was actually re-routing to answers.amazon.com.

I created a support case : CSP-106260 for this issue.
