NetIQ Aegis 2.2 and eariler


When entering a separator string manually in an activity and the apostrophe (or single quote) is used as part of the string, the apostrophe (or single quote) will be escaped from the entry and the output from the activity will only display other characters defined in the separator field.


To use a separator with a single quote, such as ' (apostrophe or single quote) or ',' (Single Quote ? Comma ? Single Quote) , use the Free Form Text option in the Input Builder.


An apostrophe (or single quote) is treated as a special character when manually input in to the separator field of an Aegis activity and will not product a proper output.
