    Hello,

    Please have a look at the following url link:

    READ_TEXT

    and

    read_text function module

    The '&' sign is special character in SAPscript, 'READ_TEXT' read this

    character from DB table as OTF data, instead of ASCII character.

    After 'READ_TEXT' read character string from DB table, you can convert

    OTF to ASCII data with function module:CONVERT_TEXT or

    CONVERT_ITF_TO_STREAM_TEXT to remove <(> or <)>.

    About details you can see SAP note: 391261.

    Regards,

    David
