When attempting to run a report in P6 and selecting a project code value that contains a comma, the following errors occur:

P6 On Screen:
Errors have been encountered while running the report. To resolve, contact your administrator.

P6 Web Access log:
"Invalid parameters requested"

BI Publisher log:
Illegal parameter value: "<parameter>=<result showing &#44; instead of a comma>"
Example: "p_code_val__Location=Pennsylvania&#44; PA"

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Log-in to P6 Web
  2. Create a Project Code
  3. Create a Project Code Value that contains a comma in it (Example: "Pennsylvania, PA")
  4. Assign the project code value to a project
  5. Publish the global services (specifically Enterprise Data)
  6. Publish the project
  7. Setup a data model with the List of Value looking for the Project Code:
     where "P6PROJECTCODE"."CODETYPENAME" = '<Project Code created for the test>')
  8. Create a basic report, generated from the data model
  9. Run the report from BIP selecting the value with the comma, successful
  10. Run the report from P6 selecting the value with the comma, failure
  11. Check P6 and bipublisher.log for errors
