I encountered strange problem with BPC conversion file. For some reason Ä, Ö and Å characters are converted in the cdm file as "?" and so dataloads fail. Last time I made changes to these, there were no problems. We haven't made any system changes recently. Here is a test conversion file:

CDM file:

Could this be related to Excel?

Just tested - I can see the same effect. You can try to perform conversion using JavaScript.

AAA js:"\u00C4\u00C4\u00C4"

\u00C4 - code for Ä

It seems that Java script works. Would be nice if the old functionality came back. This worked before, so that I only needed to input 2016.vuosi_syöttö to INTERNAL field.

You may try to upgrade to the next SP or open the issue with SAP support. I only provided you some workaround.
