Unique values field delimiter error for Map Services

Discussion created by cartographics on Nov 30, 2012
I am working in ArcGIS 10.0 to create a cached map service and have symbolized several layers at several zoom levels using unique values, many fields, such that a comma is used to delimit the different classes.

When I analyze the map for use as a map service these layers throw code 00043. The solution is to go back through the MXD and correct every instance of the (default) use of a comma as a delimiter.  Map services works by using an underscore (_) as a delimiter, however this necessitates re-adding all the values and re-symbolizing everything that will take many many hours and I already have everything styled the way I want it.  Any shortcuts?
