stripchar() function requires use of accent grave instead of quotes (I'm not making this up!)
When attempting to use the stripchar() function in a DERIVE node to remove spaces, dashes and parentheses from a phone number string field, I encountered an error: failed to apply operator or function to argument types stripchar(SYMBOL,SYMBOL).
The function requires that the first parameter be surrounded by accent grave rather than single or double quotes. This is not intuitive. It is obscure. It leads to customer frustration.
