The WebFOCUS just got upgraded to 8.2.02 and i am facing below error for few of the dashboard reports.

Error
Names cannot contain any of the following characters: Space&*()|\:;",?/

I explored over it on internet and found the issue related to -INCLUDE but unable to get any fix.

Need suggestions if anybody could help me out with this.

make sure that you are not using these special characters in fex name
Correct Syntax
 -INCLUDE IBFS:/WFC/Repository/demo/Expandrow.fex  OR -INCLUDE IBFS:/WFC/Repository/demo/Expand_row.fex 



InCorrect
 IBFS:/WFC/Repository/demo/Expand row.fex

I checked over the .fex file names as it was not having any certain special characters & the -INCLUDE statement is also correctly written. But when i run few reports, it gives me error as below:

I would like to mention one more thing that this error is coming for the entire .fex files inside certain folders in spite of all the statements written correctly.

Adding, the same .fex files are working properly in dev81 server from where these were migrated.

Hoping this to clear the scenario..

If you are using a lot of parameter substitution, you can debug your code by adding a -SET &ECHO=ALL; to the beginning of your code and when you have an error, the substituted values will tell you what the problem is.

We had a problem like this earlier. Are your problem procedures perhaps doing a -READ on a file? You might try setting default values for your variables:

-DEFAULTH &my_variable=' ';
