Last Modified: 2012-05-05
I have a report that has a parameter field that is displayed on a report. CE 8.5

The parameter field "rptHeading" that has an "&" in the name.

Ex. East & West Forcast

When users try to view the report they get the following error message in the Crytstal Rport Viewer:

The syntax of the value for prompt 'rptHeading' is incorrect near 'East'. Please correct the syntax and try again. [On Web Component Server: theservername]

What can I do to correct this problem? Thanks in advance for your assistance.
