filter with reserved characters


I write an add-in for NAV 2009 RTC but my question is mostly general.

Is it possible to use the reserved words in the filter as a search term in RTC? For example I filter on contact list and want to find the company “Test & Co KG”. I set the filter to name but yes… & is a reserved filter operation.

Is there a possiblity to escape this character or something like this?

Thanks and best regards,


Try replacing “&” with a question mark “?”

This works but when we want directly all contacts with “&” and nothing else, we got a problem.

There are no way to escape the special-characters?

I guess you can replace “&” with “+” in the names.

I can’t…
