Symbols can not be used in BPC

Hi people!

I have a question to do because I have a problem with one member in SAP BPC when i try to send a package for taking data from BW.

What type of symbols in BPC can not be used??

My problem is that I have a ID member that start and end with asterisk (*) and when i try to skip all of them with a conversion file, BPC doesn't erase these member.

This is part of the conversión file that i used:

External              Internal

*ACV*                 *SKIP

*ESM*                 *SKIP

*ESMI*                *SKIP

*                          js: %external%.replace(" ","").replace(*-+.,"")

Thanks for the support and for help me!!

    Hi,

    As an asterisk (*) stands for ANY character, while a question mark (?) stands for any SINGLE character, so (*) won't work.

    You could have used something like this:-

    External              Internal

    ?ACV?                *SKIP

    ?ESM?                *SKIP

    ?ESMI?               *SKIP

    Do you really have a member like *xxxx* ? May be it's better to correct (remove) this member on the BW side?

    bro no neeeeed

    always look for ABAP alternate due to flexiblity and for future need

    u can create a customization table for the members to be excluded. you can use wildcards, direct ID anything.
