Using the BR() function in Workflow Field Updates & Default Value formulas

Good news regarding the BR() function: We have changed the behavior so that it inserts a new line character rather than the dreaded _BR_ENCODED_.

You should now be able to compose formulas in Workflow Field Update & Default Value formulas like

Code:
MailingStreet & BR() &
MailingCity & ", " & MailingState & " " & MailingPostalCode & BR() &
MailingCountry

This fix is now live, so give it a try.

How about in Visual Force formulas? I'm trying to place it in an {!IF...} statement and get the _BR_ENCODED_

Bringing this up...

 

We get that _BR_ENCODED_ in place of the line breaks when exporting data from the reports tab. Nothing else seems to work to insert line breaks within formula fields.

 

Can anyone help ?

 

Thanks,
