    We are using a pretty standard grid in an ASP.NET MVC application, and are using the built-in filtering offered by the control. When we filter our data using brackets ([) or braces ({) (as some our data is in the format [My Name] or My Name{#2}), and Export to Excel, we end up with an empty spreadsheet. Other special characters seems to work correctly (_, *, #, etc). Is there a way I can get these characters to work when included in a filter? When exporting all rows, these bracket- and brace-containing entries appear as expected, so they are not being excluded from the grid because of the special characters.
