I'm using Star is * as the first statement in my QVW to load a set of user accounts in the section access file.
I also have a mapping load statement in my QVW to load two fields in to load table. One of the fields has * as one of the values.
The QVW load fails with a general script error which is very odd. The section access file maps a field in the file to a different data field in the data model (different from the field in the mapping load) so I'm not sure what is causing the QVW load to fail.
