Special characters in RSKC

Hi there,

I have some special characters that I need in my BW to be accepted both in lowercase and uppercase. It is special eastern European letter that are contained in my customer data (names and addresses).

When I enter a lowercase character in RCKS it is automatically converted into uppercase. Is it sufficient to enter the character in uppercase for the load to accept both lowercase and uppercase of the character?

Kind regards, Torben

    I think you have to set the flag 'lower case letters' in your infoobject.

    Hi,

    I believe the check is performed translating your characters to upper case, so the upper case wouldn't be a problem.

    I used RSKC for Catalan letters such as Ç and it worked perfectly.

    Test it and let us know!

    Regards,

    David.

    Hi Torben,

    RSKC accept capital letters. But you can force the system to accept lowercase letters. For it you need to check 'Lowercase letters' in the infoobject maintenance screen.

    However, ODS and cubes will not accept these lowercase letters if you feed them as infoobjects' key values. The most flexible way to keep texts with lowercase letters in infoobjects' texts and show them in queries as attributes or texts of IOs.

    Best regards,

    Eugene

    Torben,

    What has been said abt u r problem is right.

    u will not face any problem in going with RSKC,

    and check if that special character has been listed in the special character list provided by SAP or else u need to get it loaded into the list.
