EHS - Import Specifications/Phrases/Reports/etc. - Error code: UTF8_2_UTF16_CONVERSION


We are working to import specification data from CG33.

We have followed this link: which is indicated in:

In the first link have seen, that recording it’s not supported to EHS. It also indicates that there are other ways to import specification data.

We are using CG33, but we are having issues. We can upload files with CG3Z, but when we try to import data, from CG33, the following error appears: “Error code: UTF8_2_UTF16_CONVERSION”

Our system is in S/4HANA, then it’s in UNICODE. The note: “610695 - Export/import with R/3 systems with Unicode” indicates that it’s not possible to export phrases in format UTF-8.

We are not trying, now, to export anything and our system is not in R/3, but we understand that is more or less the same, that is, we want to import specifications in a Unicode system.

We have created one .dat file, but we don’t have a clear example to know if it’s written correctly.

We don’t know in which character standard we have to upload and import the file so that it does not have errors.

In addition, we have followed the following link:

And we have upload the example transfer file for specifications from sap help, but when we want to import data, we see the same error.

We have followed all the indications in the customization.

Could someone help us with this? We have to follow the indications indicated in the note? Could someone help us with an example of how to create a .dat file?
