Pound sign '#' in FormattedTextEdit ui


I have a web dynpro with a formattedTextEdit ui (rich text editor).

When i copy text from a word document to the formattedTextEdit, i get some unwanted pound sign in the text.

Is there any function that convert text to rich text format?

    Hi Ami,

    Try doing this: REPLACE ALL OCCURRENCE OF cl_abap_char_utilities=>cr_lf WITH ''.

    The # characters show up in the place of certain control characters that don't have a representation in character form for the GUI.
