Hi Enzo,

I would use a regex in a combination with toLowerCase for this

toLowerCase(replaceAll($Name,'\W++',''))

where $Name is the attribute that you want to sanitize and '\W++' matches one or more non-word characters. For more information see https://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/api/java/util/regex/Pattern.html

Hope this helps,

Andrej
