Handling Special Character in GYI_DOWNLOAD


Hi Experts,

We have a custom program where we are downloading the BANK, BP details such as Name, City, Street etc.

I am using cl_gui_frontend_services=>gui_download for downloading with "DBF" as file type because I need Preceding Zeros in the excel file.

But I am getting issue when there is a special character in Name, City, Street. Unconverted Special Characters(Ş, ') are replaced by #.

I have searched the SDN and found code page has to be used to solve this issue.

I tried using Code page 1100, 1160, 4103, 8400 etc, but no luck.

I won't be able to use other FMs as I need Header and preceding zeros in the excel.

Please suggest on how to resolve the issue.

Thanks & Regards,
