Re: How to change Symbols "\" in %Xso (remove \)?

Welcome to this forum,

What you do is correct except for one detail : the backslash is a special character (See help : Expression/Advanced features/Escape character) : it makes loose the following character its special meaning, if any. This is generally called "escaping".
In "%Xso("\", "_")", the backslash ('\') escapes the following '"'. To be interpreted as a standard character, '\' has to loose its special status and therefore must be preceded by another '\' : it has to be doubled.
To get what you need just use : "%Xso("\\", "_")"

Maybe the help should be clearer about this point.
