Special characters within MDM

Hi,

I would like to understand if it is possible to insert special characters (Greek characters like lambda, theeta, Mu, trade mark symbol, registered symbol) within the fields in MDM. If so please let me know the methodology.

thanks

Anantharam

    Hi Ananth,

    Yes. It is possible to store special characteristics by following method.

    1) First and foremost,Define the field type as 'Text' .

    2) If you are importing these special chars from a text file > set text file encoding as UTF-8. This can be done by using 'Save as' text file > Input file name,type and Encoding. Use this file in import manager to import.

    3) If you are importing from excel > Open the txt file from Excel > in Text import wizard, select 1252 :Western European (Windows) as File Origin > Select the required columns to be converted in excel > execute. Use the converted file to perform import.

    All special chars will be precisely stored in text field.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Vinay M.S

      MDM supports multiple languages and wide set of characters.

      Against any text field defined you can maintain any set of characters. Now for the actual keying you will need a separate keyboard. Or you can get few greek characters from google and just paste them in a MDM field, it will work.

    Hi Anantharam,

    yes it would be possible to enter the special characters in a field if it would be defined as "TEXT".

    Is the requirement something else?
