Crystal Reports 2013 - Renaming a table

Hi

I was just wondering if you can rename a table\command with a \ in it.

In 2013 i get this error:

"Invalid Argument Provided. Details: The alias requested 'AvailableInventoryLocations\', Contains a combination of characters which is not considered to be valid.

I had a similar issue with the XI version, but there was a registry fix for this.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Business Objects\Suite 11.0\Crystal Reports\Database]

"InvalidAliasCharList"="!(){}"

Save the text file with an extension of .reg then double click on the file you created.


In the 2013 version it doesn't have the same drill down in the registry.


Does anyone know a way around it as i need to be able to add a slash character to my reports?


\


Thanks for your help.


Regards,


Gary

    Hi Gary,

    The path should be:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SAP Business Objects\Suite XI 4.0\Crystal Reports\Database
