where [illustration Link] is building the correct url but 

I have another formula text field called [Illustration External] to show the image

"<img src=[illustration Link]>"  

I have Allow HTML but it wont show the image, just what looks like a broken link.

Is my syntax wrong?


tks

You are attempting to interpolate the field value in the middle of a string:

"<img src=[illustration Link]>"  


You need to concatenate the field value instead like this:

"<img src=" &
[illustration Link] &
">"
