     - create source and target modules with links
     - create an attribute called '  string '   ' in the target
     - in the source run the analysis wizard opting to only trace to
    the target module
     - on the attribute selection step select only the new
    attrribute
    
    On finishing the wizard the column is added and layout DXL is
    run for the first time. this results in DXL errors.

Problem conclusion

  • Problem was traced to an existing function.
    
    The generated display DXL is not correctly escaping any
    quotes in attribute names.
    
    Used the existing addEscapes() function to escape the
    attribute names
