Hello @kotireddysyamala ,

If you want to grap entire XML of the delivery object you can do following:


var delivery = NLWS.nmsDelivery.load(467173)

Which schema does the memo belong to? can you share screenshots, you can get an idea of the memo xml structure by using the expression toString(memo) in the output column and share it here.


for example in javascript, given the following xml structured field, the substring will return the value between the indices 23 and 29 (example in


The substring() method extracts characters, between to indices (positions), from a string, and returns the substring.


xml = '<?xml version="1.0"?> <people>   <person first-name="eric" middle-initial="H" last-name="jung">     <address street="321 south st" city="denver" state="co" country="usa"/>     <address street="123 main st" city="arlington" state="ma" country="usa"/>   </person>    <person first-name="jed" last-name="brown">     <address street="321 north st" city="atlanta" state="ga" country="usa"/>     <address street="123 west st" city="seattle" state="wa" country="usa"/>     <address street="321 south avenue" city="denver" state="co" country="usa"/>   </person> </people>';


value returned = people


In adobe campaign the function is Substring(memo,0,255) you can find more information on this thread

Carefull about kind of implementation like "grabbing a whole memo field to personalize an email":
If the memo field is common to all recipients of the delivery, you'll then have use a delivery variable like here:

You can create also a personnalization block dynamically that will be included in the delivery

The reason is about how works AC with personnalization data:
it creates what we call "delivery parts" that is a kind of package regrouping the template code and and an amount of personnalization data for each recipients.
More you are using personnalization data, more the "delivery part" will be heavy... More it is heavy, more it will take time to send the emails: if you have other deliveries to be sent at the same time, it will then create a bottleneck
