NSC | Remove Duplicate Values when using NS_CONCAT in a Saved Search formula

Scenario

User has a formula that uses NS_CONCAT function. However, it is returning the value more than once in the list.

For example:

  • Expected result: A1, B2, C3
  • Actual result: A1, A1, B2, B2, C3, C3


Solution

Add the DISTINCT function in the formula:

NS_CONCAT(DISTINCT({fieldid}))


Note: Using SQL DISTINCT function in Formula is currently an active enhancement request under Enhancement 166265. However, this seems to work when paired with NS_CONCAT.

Disclaimer: The NS_CONCAT function is not officially supported by NetSuite. Furthermore, result values for formula fields containing the NS_CONCAT function are limited to 4000 characters. Use this function at your own discretion.

Howdy, Stranger!
