AllowExpressions and [ char in raw data issue.
I have a number of reports and it appears AllowExpressions is true by default.
Problem I have is the customers (1000+ locations) like to use the [ char in their data a lot.
Which this breaks thing all the time
The following error(s) have occured:
MemoOrderedBy: Error in expression '
': Expression expected
Without trying to tell our customers please don't use [ is there any way around this?
Basically format the text in the memos to escape the [ ?
Should I write a function to strip [ in every db field before trying to show it in the report?
“ExpressionDelimiters” the key to this? If I pick a different char set, possible new can of worms by picking something that may get used.
FYI I have ZERO control of the data side. Not one bit so I can't change that. My life is to work around it.
