If you are doing an insert or update with this info then the problem is likely an issue with the DataAssist code for the insert or update. It uses the pipe character as a separator for the values so having one in the values could cause this to happen.
One way to get around that would be to encode the value for html entities before you insert or update it. If you are using php the function looks like this:
htmlentities($_POST['your irite instance'])
This is just an example, let us know if you have these updates or inserts occurring and the name of your iRite editor and I can give you some pointers on how to make this update.
