SharePoint Designer Email Sends ???? in an Email

Forum users occasionally ask: Why does SharePoint Designer put ???? into my email instead of a field value?

One reason this happens is because the variable to which you refer is null.

This can happen because you are trying to reference a field from the "current item" but the user never entered a value into that form field.

    One workaround I found for this is to first store the field you are referencing in a variable, and set the type to String. This seems to work in data view displays for NULL values so I suspect it would work for e-mails as well. Just insert the workflow variable into the e-mail body vs. the straight field value.
