When inputting a client address of "4 & 5 wherever street" the "&" doesn't show up as it should, a " _ " is inserted instead.

Anyone else had this issue?

Is it actually and issue... or shall I write it off as a blonde moment??

No you are not having a blonde moment, it's a restriction of the programming language I am using to code SimplyPats. The & (ampersand) character has a special purpose, resulting in it not displaying properly.

You can try adding 2 ampersands in a row which hopefully should result in just one being shown correctly. e.g.

Bill Bloggs && Sons

In your case "4 && 5 wherever street"

Hopefully this should resolve the problem.

Not sure about blonde moments but computers have definitely made me go grey! ;)

Regards, Richard
