BPC 10.1 conversion file problem with Ö Ä


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.

    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.
