    If I type the code below using the operators instead of the bolded words it gets posted like this: salesMonth 0

    salesMonth lessorequal @month and YTD = 0 OR salesMonth = @month and YTD notequal 0

    Somehow it is interpreted as a HTML tag or something.

    testing regular text vs the {code} blocks:

    with ampersand LT semicolon escapes:

    salesMonth <= @month and YTD = 0 OR salesMonth = @month and YTD <> 0

    as typed

    salesMonth 0

    salesMonth 0

    yes you are right...seems to be stripping out the stu assuming HTML tags. Doesn't matter if it's regualr text or {code}

    I think the editor should automatically translate the less then and more then into HTML escape sequences. I do not use HTML that frequently to remember all the escape sequences.

    It appears the problem becames 'visible' when the LT and GT signs are in the same line. The below examples both have the same text but the text in example 2 is all in one line and is interpreted as a HTML.

    EXAMPLE 1

    sales < 0

    and

    sales > 0

    EXAMPLE 2

    sales 0

    If you enclose code in the [ code ] tags (to the left), it should work.

    Trying if it works.

    (It did not in the preview)

    EXAMPLE 2

    sales 0

    Steve,

    Either I did not understand what your instructions or it still does not work.

    That part "(to the left)" is not quite clear to me.
