Error description

  • If a text value in DOORS starts with "\\" it will be interpreted
    as a link. If the following text contains square brackets ("["
    or "]") the link will be invalid.
    
    But it will still be exported as a link in migration packages,
    and that causes errors when importing into DNG.
    
    To recreate:
    
     - create a text attribute value for an object such as
    "\\A[11BC]"
     - add the module to a migration package
     - export the package then import it into DNG
    
    An error will suggest the attribute value is invalid.
    
    Workaround:
    
    Manually editing the original value, or the link status in the
    package, may be possible in some instances.
