Fieldname Allowed characters

Just a thought, inteh fieldmap and computedfield sections in the config file, can we have a fieldname with a value of say parenthesis () in them e.g. ABC(D)?

Yes, the field names in the fieldMap and computed index fields section of the Coveo for Sitecore configuration files can have special characters in them. They will be translated to the Coveo format before being created and set in the CES index as the real Sitecore fields. So your ABC(D) field name will be fabcz40xdz41x in the CES index.
