    I've discovered that if an XML field name has dashes in it, that Telerik reports can't read the full field name.  For example, if I have 'First-Name', the error generated says it can't find 'First'.  Is there a way around this, by chance?

    Hi Amanda,

    When the fields' names contain special characters, invalidating the names as identifiers for the fields,, you need to escape the special character or enclose the whole field's name in brackets.
    For more details about expressions, check the following articles:
    I hope the above information is helpful.
