Glossary import fails when it reaches any terms with & (ampersand) symbol


  • The import process fails when it reaches any terms with & (ampersand) symbol
  • All terms before the failure are imported successfully, but any terms that come after the problematic one are not imported


  • Product: ANCILE uPerform
  • Version: 5.20.x

Terms containing & (ampersand) symbols

This issue is resolved in uPerform 5.30. Please download and install the latest update to resolve the issue.

If you are unable to install the latest version at this time, we recommend using one or more of the following steps:

  1. Delete the terms with & (ampersands) from the provided master copy of the glossary then manually add the terms into the glossary on the uPerform Server
  2. Rename the & (ampersand) in the affected terms to "and" which will allow the glossary to be imported
  3. Remove the  & (ampersand) and replace it with another letter
