can you use the \ escape?
Why not use a standardizer in Marketo or SFDC? Congo=Congo, Democratic
or better yet, standardize the picklist in SFDC to the correct ISO names and ISO codes.
The backslash escape doesn't work either, but great idea.
I've built standardizers in Marketo so it sounds like that'll be the way to go. I was hoping to make it more preventative so that the system wouldn't have to react to the inaccurate data as much.
Also, while this specific use case is resolved, it would still be a good tidbit on how to handle commas in a list. Perhaps Grégoire Michel has some ideas too?
On how to handle commas in a list in general, I have not idea, i fact...
Or I have one, but you may not like it: move every one to a French version of windows, and list separators will by default be semi-columns
In SFDC, though, the Std Country Picklist has a few values with commas, including this one. But you can change these values in SFDC (setup -> administer -> Data Management -> State and Country picklist) and you could remove the commas in SFDC (and in Marketo).
