How to use a $ in a form search?

Communicator

I have a search that uses filed!="*$", however when I use this in a form the form will not work. Is there a way to escape the $ so it is not interpreted as a form field?

I think you can escape it with another dollar sign so $$

Thank you!!

I was trying to write XML and include a search that looked like:

eval something=$n$ | eval filename=(code) ........ | map maxsearches=28 search="| inputcsv $filename"

... and it was not working for the life of me. Turning $filename into $$filename$$ did the trick.

eval something=$n$ | eval filename=(code) ........ | map maxsearches=28 search="| inputcsv $$filename$$"
