Using special characters when working with DocGeneration

When naming certain items whilst working with DocGeneration (e.g. data tags, business rules, content sections and templates) it is important to avoid use of any "special" characters. Care should be taken as SharePoint might allow you to create or upload documents with special characters included. The reason that we recommend avoiding special characters is due to them being used in the code of DocGeneration and it is known to have caused issues when used to name certain functionality. 

Here is a list of non alpha numeric characters that cause issues with DocGeneration:

  • ~ (tilde)
  • # (number sign)
  • % (percent)
  • { (left curly brace)
  • } (right curly brace)
  • < (less than)
  • > (greater than)
  • + (plus sign)
  • : (colon)
  • ' (single quote or apostrophe)
  • " (double quote)
  • / (forward slash)
  • \ (backslash)
  • | (vertical bar or pipe)
  • ? (question mark)
  • * (asterisk)
  • & (ampersand)
