When '&' is present in the data of a field, such as in Project Name, it is noticed that it gets converted to '&'. This happens when XOG is used. For example: If Project Name is "Design & Development", then when XOG is used, the data gets entered as "Design & Development" in the application.
"escapeText" option can be used in XOG to deal with this situation. It takes two values: true and false.
