Data Count doesn't work correctly with lists that contain a comma

I'm trying to do a "data count" function on a list of names in a check list. So the data looks like this:


[x] Smith, Julie


[ ] Williamson, Bill


[x] Yan, Samantha


But when you do a data count of this, in this case it would return 4. If you do the same thing, but remove the commas, it works fine.


In my case, since all the data has commas, I can divide by two to get the right number. Though it's definitely irritating.

Hi Mark,


I'm sorry to tell you that it's a known problem and I can't tell you if we will fix soon. You can use all the quotation mark except commas.
