How to use a semicolon as a character in a source expression without breaking everyting

Received Response


When using a semicolon within a source expression it's interpreted as a separator between stacked import format expressions and breaks up the expression, resulting in an error.

Content (required):

Example: split(ENTITY, ";", 3)

The use of a semicolon in a source expression results in the breaking up of that expression into two pieces which are executed as separate expressions (->import error).

Is there anyway to make this work? We're using a semicolon as the delimiter in our data extracts from the source system and I would hate having to change that.
