ITS Character conversion failed,Invalid characters replaced with #

Due performance problems with our ITS (ITS 620 in windows 2000 server), we decided to upgrade to Patch Level 19 from 3 , since then all greek characters coming from the bHTMLTemplates are beeing displayed as '#', only variables filled in at runtime are displayed as valid greek characters.

There is no issue in how these templates have been saved (unicode...),all templates have been developed and saved in SAP using "SE80/Internet Services" Devlopment


Already know that the problem caused because I have Greek text in the template but is not possible for me to import all those pages in HTRC file. All those Greek characters are part of the customer contract witch is 3 pages and this will not possible for performance reason to import them in to HTRC file.

The patch level now is 21

Any sugestion ?

Thanks a lot

    Hello Michael,

    The codepage which is used to read HTML files is stored in the registry (config/Its*.xml files). Have a look at CodePageSystem parameter and try changing it's value to 1704 (SAP codepage for Greek language).

    I hope this helps.

    Kind regards,
