    I've got a grid bound to a dataset that contains a column named "[$Colld]".      The brackets are actually a part of the column name.
    For this column on my grid, I've got 





    and that works fine, the data shows in the grid.   However, I've also got   







    and when I click on the column header to sort by that column, I get this error:
    Cannot find column $Colld.

    It's like the brackets get ignored when they are in the SortExpression. 
    So I tried:    







    but I get this error:
    [[$Colld]] is neither a DataColumn nor a DataRelation for table ICRData.

    How can I escape the brackets so that the SortExpression is accurately interpreted as "[$Colld]" ??

    Hello Tab Alleman,

    You got this error because square brackets are not supported in RadGrid field names. Please take a look at the following Forum post which discusses similar kind of issue.
