Report Fails to Generate

I am getting an error when trying to generate a report using a template. We have been using and generating reports with this survey and template for a few years now and it randomly broke. The error message reads:

"An error occurred when rendering by the report engine. Failed to parse ${rails}"

The ${rails} field is a plain text field used to note the number of guide rails in the project area. When this field is left blank or has text entered, the report generates totally fine. If a number is entered, it fails to parse. This is a new error as half of the previous submissions have numbers entered and half are blank and there has never been an issue in the past. I changed the number 2 to "two" for the record that was failing and the report generated fine. I'm lost on what could be causing the issue as other similar questions report without issue.

Did something change recently that would cause the error?

Thank you for the help.

Hi @Tim-Woodfield 

Apologies for the delay. If it is possible could you please share your report template here so that we can reproduce the issue?
