No Fix

Summary
When a data extension has an ampersand (&) in it's name, attempting to import from the "Records" tab will generate an error or never load, resulting in import failure.

Repro
1. Create a data extension with an ampersand in the name e.g 'Emails & Addresses'
2. Navigate to the 'Records' tab
3. Choose to Import a file, populate the 'Import into Data Extension' window and move to Next
An error will appear and the import will fail.

Workaround
This only happens in the Records tab. You can import normally from the Data Extension list view.
