Error description

  • You are using OUTPUT EXPORT command sytnax to export your
    created output viewer content to some other format. When you try
    to create a filename with an embedded ampersand ('&'), the file
    name is altered:
    
    * Export Output.
    OUTPUT EXPORT
      /CONTENTS  EXPORT=ALL  LAYERS=PRINTSETTING
    MODELVIEWS=PRINTSETTING
      /DOC  DOCUMENTFILE='C:\temp\In & OUTPUT.doc'
         NOTESCAPTIONS=YES  WIDETABLES=WRAP PAGEBREAKS=YES
         PAGESIZE=INCHES(8.5, 11.0)  TOPMARGIN=INCHES(1.0)
    BOTTOMMARGIN=INCHES(1.0)
         LEFTMARGIN=INCHES(1.0)  RIGHTMARGIN=INCHES(1.0).
    
    Results in a file called 'In & OUTPUT.doc'
    

Local fix

  • This issue will be addressed in a future release.  In the
    interim:
    Don't use ampersand in filename
    Use OMS instead of OUTPUT EXPORT.
