Issue/Introduction

When using the CONCAT function in the Portal, the Function description in the Portal says "concatenate fixed or masked or unmasked values". However, there is no option to specify to use Masked values from when including Columns that have been Masked.  FDM does have a check box for this function to specify to use Masked values when performing the concatenation. This option did not seem to make it to the Portal UI.

Also note, "Concatanate" spelling in the Portal UI is incorrect. It should be spelled "Concatenate".

Environment

TDM Portal 4.5 and 4.6
