Values of parameters with & cannot be retrieved
Drop down is configured with the source as a report definition. The parameters passed to the report definition contain & in their values. However, the values cannot be retrieved from the report definition.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
1. Create a section with a dropdown field X and an Autocomplete field Y
2. Retrieve some data from the table for dropdown (X) which contains special characters like (&, (,))
3. Pass the dropdown value as a parameter for the Autocomplete field
4. Retrieve values for Autocomplete using the report definition based on the parameter (dropdown X) which must act as a filter condition
