character in saved beastmode some how replaced with exclamation point - !
Has anyone ever experienced a character in a beastmode syntax being replaced by an exclamation point?
I created a beastmode probably about a year ago and validated it against the data, and at the time, it worked properly. We've since updated to a different dataset and copied all the beastmodes from the old data set over to the new data set, and have made sure to account for any column name changes with in the beast mode.
I discovered that this beastmode is no longer working correctly, and when I examined the syntax, I see there are two exclamation points in it. I don't think I would have originally put those in there because I can't remember ever using exclamation points in a beastmode, or know if they even serve a purpose. But the formula says it is valid when I test it, so that is odd, too.
If I had to guess, I think the original characters were maybe less then or greater than characters, but I tried insterting those and testing the beastmode and it still did not work correctly, so I'm not 100% sure
Has anyone ever heard of a specific character or beastmode function or column being replaced by an exclamation point in a beastmode?
