    Default Escaping Special Characters

    My value will work as a parameter or as itself in all cases except one.

    In this one particular case, I have an amersand(&) value. So the parameter is pointing to this value and it has an ampersand.

    If I put in the value itself, it works fine.

    If I put in the parameter pointing to the value, it does not work.

    I tried putting a backword slash, \, character in front, but had no luck.

    What do you guys think?

    Can you provide any more detail? Where is this value being set - in the Parameters tab of a job or transformation, or somewhere else? What are you doing with it when you encounter the error?
