Special character in variable

Hi all,

I have created a variable to store a value that is obtained from Excel file. e.g. jobID.

The jobID can be 12345 or AB(BC)/EFG/22006 (with special characters e.g. “(” and “/”)

Thereafter, I passed this variable to a selector. I noticed that if the jobID is “12345”, the selector works fine. But if it is “AB(BC)/EFG/22006”, there is issue with the selector (i.e. cannot find the aaname).

I suspect it is because of the special characters in the variable, hence unable to find the selector (i.e. aaname).

Please advise, thank you!
