As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only. Moving forward, myibi is our community platform to learn, share, and collaborate. We have the same Focal Point forum categories in myibi, so you can continue to have all new conversations there. If you need access to myibi, contact us at email@example.com and provide your corporate email address, company, and name.
Fundamentally in 5.2.1 you're still limited in not being able to use a number of characters that are protected to WebFOCUS code. It's definitely an annoyance. Other characters that will cause issues are percent sign (%), period (.), comma (,), and semicolon (. You'll have this problem trying to use these in names, and it's documented to avoid them for the time being.
Ultimately we'll come up with a way to allow this but that way is not already built in 5.2.1.
