      wrong information in KB article 3440


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version

      OSX 10.9.3

      Description of the issue


      states that a single quote is recognized as a word delimiter and it is not.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      WordCount( "John's") = 1
      Leftwords( "John's" ; 1 ) = "John's"

               Thank you for your post.

               Your example is correct.  Whenever alpha characters occur on both sides of a single-quote, it is treated as a single word.  If a numeric character occurs on either side of the single-quote, then it is treated as two words.  For example: a'b is treated as one word, while a'1, 1'b and 1'1 are treated as two words.  I have sent a message to the person responsible for the Knowledge Base Articles to make sure it is updated properly.

               Thank you for taking the time to point this out.
