Text that includes # not showing up

My form includes a text box that the user can enter information into then click on a button to add that information into a table.

I have run into a strange problem. Every entry is working fine except one that includes the # sign. That one is in the table, but won't show up in the lists on the forms. Every other entry is working.

I suspect it is because of the # sign, but I am not sure who to get around this.

Thank you for any help you can give me!

That is often a sign that the column width is too small - especially for dates. Try expanding the column width.
