  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • One cannot add multiple lines of text in a multiline string
    field using cqtool edit_record command.
    
    Any attempt to do so using the edit_record command casues an
    error like the one below:
    
    ? cqtool edit_record -u admin -p pass -s FirstSchema -d SAMPL -r
    SAMPL00000104 -Description 'line 3' 'line 4'
    Record {0} not found
    (Record line 4 not found )
    
    It works fine for cqtool submit, but it fails for cqtool
    edit_record
