Issue with Reporting Filters with reserved characters

Martyn Houghton

Recommended Posts

Following recent updates to either the Platform or Admin Tool, existing reports where the Data Filters include textual fields with reserved characters in them are failing to return matching rows and display text the criteria is being corrupted. In our case, this is being caused by organisation names containing Ampersand '&' in organisation names.

The reserved character is being 'escaped' as @amp; in the selection criteria, but each time you add another organisation to the criteria list containing an ampersand, it is duplicated again.

Even without the duplicate escaped characters the reports are still not returning records for this organisation, which are present and meet the other criteria.



We are also having issues when entering organisation names into user prompted criteria where the name contains an appostrify.
