      Hello Alexander,

      I seem to have discovered a possible bug with the spjs.utility.queryItems function. The query does not seem to work if the queried text contains and ‘&’ character. For example the following query would not return results:

      var qRes = spjs.utility.queryItems({
      “listName”: “List_Name”,
      “query”: “<Where><Eq><FieldRef Name=’Title’ /><Value Type=’Text’>foo&bar</Value></Eq></Where>”,
      “viewFields”: [“foo”, “bar”]
      });

      Hi,
      In a CAML query you must append “amp;” to your & – for some reason I cannot write it out here because the character is changed to a plain & when I submit the comment.

      or wrap the value part of your query like this:

      <Eq><FieldRef Name="Title" /><Value Type="Text"><![CDATA[foo&bar]]></Value></Eq>
