String data in table showing "\"

I have set an override with a unit of String. I could not find it so i typed it in. But the data is still showing the \ in the display of the value. How can one remove that from the table output?

I also have this set as a variable. When i look at the variable preview or what is displayed in the dropdown, it does not show the “/” char. And if i add that variable to the where clause, it shows me only values that dont have spaces. I think the two might be related.

Thoughts?
