What invalid character really do in BW?


Hi all,

Invalid character really a pain to data load, as it is kind of impossible to control user from inputting them.

My question is, what harm does the invalid character really do to the system?

As one of the very common solution to the invalid character stuff is to configure it as a valid character, so:

- Why count it as invalid at the first place?

- Why this character is fine for others applicate but just not BW?

- What exactly it will harm BW if exists in data?

Tried to search on the web and don't seem to find any information, any inputs or experience shareing will be more then welcome.
