try to delete and re-write the problematic part of the  string in the Database , (without using cut/paste)
if it did not work , check if code page or collation on the database server

good job,

although the "-" is a Latin character that must not be effected with code page,

that means your "-" was typed while keyboard was changed to none-English language
