Hi Mike

I found that combit answered your Question in their Forum. You just have to add a

Code:
Get LLSetOption 319 1 to iRet
inside the OnJobAfterOpen Event, then the "#" will be allowed again.

The LL_OPTION_COMPAT_ALLOW_INVALID_CHARS_IN_SINGLEFIEL DFORMULA Constant is defined within the List & Label Library 25, for 24 you can just use the 319 the same way.

HTH
