Google Analytics Bugs Out DataAssist

Im using DataAssist to create a field to hold the Google Analytics code the problem is when I insert or update the form. The code goes crazy and inserts only part of the code. For instance the following code when inserted.....
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
<script type="text/javascript">

var _gaq = _gaq || [];
_gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-AccountNumber']);
_gaq.push(['_trackPageview']);

(function() {
var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true;
ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js';
var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);
})();

</script>
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Only places this part in the database
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
<script type="text/javascript">

var _gaq = _gaq
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Then ignores all the rest or puts part of it in a different field.

I'm using PHP 5.2 mysql with the field set as a text field.

I own Powerstore 4 and see that it's possible to store the data in a database so any idea what gives?

try adding the following at line 1 of the insert and update pages:

php:
<?php

if(!empty($_POST)) {
    foreach(
$_POST as $key => $value) {
        
$_POST[$key] = str_replace("|""&#124;"$value);
    }
}
?>

Didn't make any difference at all.

the bulletin board software converted the pipe html entity to a pipe,

on this line:
$_POST[$key] = str_replace("|", "|", $value);

the second | should be:
& # 1 2 4 ;

i added spaces between each character to prevent it from being converted to the pipe again, you will need to remove the spaces between characters.
