Last updated on SEPTEMBER 27, 2019

Applies to:

BI Publisher (formerly XML Publisher) - Version 12c to 12c [Release 12.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


An Analysis was saved to a folder with an "&" in the like "In & Out".

The next step was to create a new Data Model using the Analysis but the contents of folder "In & Out" were not returned.
From /xmlpserver, the catalog manager is also not able to display the contents on "In & Out" folder.
For a test, BIP catalog manager was used to create a new folder called "Up & Down" which returned the follow message:

  "Invalid characters (~, !, #, $, %, ^, &, *, +, `, |, :, ", \\, <, >, ?, ,, /)"

Catalog folders with names which include an "&" can be created in Analytics/OBIEE.
Need to build folders in BI Publisher with these special characters.
