I have an application written in C#, which allows the user to load their destination schema (in xml format) and writer their transformation expressions either in VBScript or in T-SQL. It uses DTS to do the ETL job.

Everything works great except with one problem. If there is a hypen ("-") in any of the destination attributes, the transformation fails with syntax error. It happens only with VBScript.

Here is my transformation:

"Function Main()

DTSDestination(\"Field-1\") = #01/01/2004#

End Function"

If I replace the hypen with underscore, it works without any problem.

Does anyone have any idea about this problem?
