& character in string causes parameter dialog to pop up (Was: ODT for VS Code 21.4.0)

Hi,

When I use the & character even in a literal string, the parameter dialog screen asks for input values.

    Hi, I will move this over to the ODT VS Code forum and modify the topic name to make it more descriptive.

    You will want to issue:

    SET DEFINE OFF

    to turn off the subsitution variable '&'.

    There is also the option of SET ESCAPE ON to turn on escape variables, however there may be a bug with that. I can't get it to work consistantly.
