    Not a huge deal :) (I can simply strip the . from the data field name), but this library is really helping me write my little personal budget report, so I thought I'd report the error

    You need to escape the period with two backslashes. For more details see the string section of the columns.data docs. specifically:

    . - Dotted Javascript notation. Just as you use a . in Javascript to read from nested objects, so to can the options specified in data. For example: browser.version or browser.name. If your object parameter name contains a period, use \\ to escape it - i.e. first\\.name.
