Error with Pipe Character in expense report

I"m attempting to create a new expense report with the requirement that the form area "business purpose" is filled in with some information.  If I leave it blank, I get error "Required Field" and if I put anything at all in the form, it kicks out error "Entry may not include the Pipe character: |" even though I am NOT using the Pipe character.  I cannot input any expenses or start a report until this form entry check is corrected.

@leslie_zinger Hello there. I did a little investigating and the way your site is setup it indeed is set to not allow Pipe characters. However, I think that this setting is maybe causing the issue. I've not seen anyone use this validation option before. 


Because this is related to a field you have to fill out on your report, you will need the person at your company who is in charge of SAP Concur to get this fixed. I found a name that you can reach out that may be able to help get the issue resolved. I'll send her name to you in a private message here on the Community. Check the little envelope icon in the upper right corner here in about two minutes. 

Thank you,
