JS - Base64

    OK QuickBase Smarty Pants, I need some serious help!  Here is my situation:

    I have 3 fields:
    1 - [URL] - (URL) Holds the URL for the media file I want to upload later
    1 - [Formula] - (Formula text) Formula below to go to the internet & finds the Base64-encoding for the [URL] field and puts the Base64 value in the [Base64] field.
    1 - [Base64] - (Text) Holds the Base64 value that will be used in my API to upload the media file into my QuickBase record.

    I am using the following formula to take the [URL] field & put the Base64 code into the [Base64] field.  However, I am receiving a syntax error.  I have been looking over it and can not find anything wrong.  Could it be my field type or am I actually missing something in my formula?

    var url = "https://raw.github.com/carlo/jquery-base64/master/jquery.base64.min.js"">https://raw.github.com/carlo/jquery-base64/master/jquery.base64.min.js"">https://raw.github.com/carlo/jquery-base64/master/jquery.base64.min.js";

    I'm not sure if this is supposed to be whole formula or a part of a larger  formula (as a formula cannot just be the part with the formula variable)  but for the formula variable part you need to begin with

    var text url =

    If the entire thing is one long code block - I think you have syntax errors due to " and '

    The entire thing has to be wrapped in " " because thats how QB interprets a formula like this. So instead of having "#_fid_6" you need to do '#_fid_6'

    More along the lines of 
    "var url = 'https://raw.github.com/carlo/jquery-base64/master/jquery.base64.min.js&quot';

    You can't have " in the actual code block - unless you want to put a back slash in front of it like \" to make it interpret it literally
