DeviceType - SAPWIN printing other special characters as #

Hi Experts,

In smartform I need to use ALT+255(space counted as 1 character) which with have an output of '#' when printed.

I have searched that it is due to our device type SAPWIN i have to change it into SWINCF which is not an option for us.

Is there any way to make SAPWIN read special characters like ALT+255?

    Hi Michael,


    I suppose you mean the NBSP character is it right? Usually these NBSP characters are for HTML.
    As per the Unicode chart - http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U0080.pdf - this special, non-printable character can only be handled by special Unicode device types, most other device types replace it by # during the print.

    If you had a Unicode system, you could have created the spool really via device type SWINCF/PDFUC, which supports character U+00A0.


    Best regards,
    Hedvig
