In this scenario, we want to ensure the quality of all Contact Addresses. We want to run a check on the addresses in the Contact entity to make sure they do not use the special characters ” , ; , < , >
We will run this formula whenever a Contacts Address fields have been changed (or created) . It will catch the changes to the Contact record before they are sent to the database and remove any of the special characters above.
