I am setting up a wire type table. When I get to multi- colored wire, I am given an error. We always name our wire
(W/BK) #12 The error message says I am unable to use that symbol. Any way around that?

You can't use a slash. Computers try to interpret slash as a directory switch. You can use an underscore. In the old days layer names could not contain a space so we used underscore to delineate. I still do out of habit.
You could always give the wire layer a wire color label "substitute". In a wire label you can use a slash, and when creating a from/to reports, run the user post "substitue wire color/gauge label text for LAYER names", and your user specified wire color will be used.
