    Report Layout converts & into %26amp;

    RyanWhite

      When using APEX 4.2.1 with the Instance Setting: Report Printing: Print Server = Oracle APEX Listener.  I use an after processing branch call to PRINT_REPORT=REPORT_PDF.  The Report Query for REPORT_PDF has Source Query: "select 'A & B' DESCRIPTION from dual" which uses Report Layout "LAYOUT_7".

      When I choose Output Format="XML" for the Report Query, the description field is returned as 'A & B' which is rendered as 'A & B' in browser.

      When I choose Output Format="PDF" for the Report Query, the description field is returned as 'A %26amp; B' which is rendered as 'A %26amp; B' in Adobe Reader.

      How do I get the Adobe Reader to output 'A & B'?

       

      Thank you,

      Ryan
