      How do I replace @ symbol in email address on a find?

      Post

           Hello,

           I'm creating a conference registration page which asks for name, email, address, etc, etc in it.  I would like to have attendees have the option to update information that they submitted when they first registered.  To do this, I'm creating a layout where they can search for their record by submitting their confirmation number (which is emailed to them) and their email address.  

           When I attempted this with a simple find script, it always comes back as "no records found" even though I know the info is typed correctly.  After searching the forums, I found out that FM uses the @ symbol as a placeholder.  So when someone types their email address in (ie. name@gmail.com), no records will be found.  Apparently if you search for name\@gmail.com, the record will be found.  Does anyone know how to write a script that whenever someone searches on an email address, the @ symbol gets replaced with \@?

           Thanks in advance!
