Weldment Cut List Description/Material String Problem When Using Quotation Marks

We have just upgraded to Solidworks 2015 and we are having a strange issue with our weldment cut lists.

 

If the description contains a double quotation mark ( " ), which we often use to denote inches in our naming conventions, the material property will not resolve in the cut list.  Instead, it displays the unresolved calling string in the form "SW-Material@@@Description@Filename.SLDPRT".

 

I understand that it is viewing that second quotation mark as a termination of the string, but how do we stop this from happening?  Obviously, we could stop using the quotation marks going forward, but this would still create issues with >1000 other weldments in our vault.
