Full Version: import items with special characters in part number
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
We are trying to determine if certain characters can be imported.
The template has given us an error on ' & + " . (space) that these characters cannot be in the Part Number.

Is this an issue with the version PHP or MySQL.
The PHP doc says MyqSql 5.1.6 (and later) supports all characters for identifiers (indexes?) except ASCII null.

Is this a webERP restriction?

Thanks Bill
Hi Bill, it is a webERP restriction, Tim

You can see the full range of disallowed characters in this function from includes/MiscFunctions.php:

function ContainsIllegalCharacters ($CheckVariable) {
if (mb_strstr($CheckVariable,"'")
OR mb_strstr($CheckVariable,'+')
OR mb_strstr($CheckVariable,'?')
OR mb_strstr($CheckVariable,'.')
OR mb_strstr($CheckVariable,"\"")
OR mb_strstr($CheckVariable,'&')
OR mb_strstr($CheckVariable,"\\")
OR mb_strstr($CheckVariable,'"')
OR mb_strstr($CheckVariable,'>')
OR mb_strstr($CheckVariable,'<')){
return true;
} else {
return false;
