To workaround issues where special characters are not allowed on some of the reports by BIP.

Here are some special characters that is failing:

asterisk "*", space " ", comma "," , left "(" and right ")" parenthesis, and ampersand "&"...

Some of the latest guidelines for BI:

1. Do not use the following invalid characters (~, !, #, $, %, ^, &, *, +, ', |, :, \", \\, <, >, ?, ,, /,.) for Data Set Name.
2. Data set names should not include special characters.These are used for nodes, keep them simple.
