An export has a complex projection that exports just the letter characters of a field.

For example, if the field contains ABC 123A, the exported value is ABCA.


 Here is an example of the problem complex projection.  This complex projection uses a custom function, TRANSLATE:

<quer:projection alias="EmployeeClass" xmlns:quer="">
     <quer:customFunction name="TRANSLATE">
          <quer:field path="ProfileInformation,Application,Offers,TEST,Code"/>
          <quer:string>ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789 .,-_#/\;</quer:string>

Note: Above is using an Offer UDF that is a LUDS ("TEST")
