What is the syntax to include both field data and a text string in a field update?
It is just printing the name of the field instead of the referenced data.
In order to use a field expression along with a text string, it all has to be inside the expression; for example:
$("New Request logged: ServiceReq# " + ServiceReqNumber)
Use only one dollar sign to begin the field expression, and include everything within the two outside parentheses, text strings within quotation marks.
