DQM - Weird Finding


We are seeing something wierd with DQM for SAP. One of the web services, when run from the designer, will not work correctly. It gives an error that there are too many instances for the upside down question mark in Custom function: CF_DQ_SAP_REMOVE_FIELD_DELIMITERS.

If we open that custom function in the designer, we see several instances of the upside down question mark. However, if I export the function to ATL or XML and then open it with Notepad ++, we only see one instance of the upside down question mark and the other instances are the correct values.

My question is this, is this exptected behavior or is there an incorrect setting in our designer that is preventing the code from being displayed correctly.

FYI, the cutom function executes as planned in production.

Thanks for any help.

    • Brandon,

      Thanks for the info. I cannot open your URL but I did look at SAP note 1558444. The note says it's for product DS 3.2 but I assume it also applies to DS 3.1, correct? We're seeing this issue with different SAP custom functions in both versions.

    We are having similar issues with special symbols (upside down question mark) in notes field and in DQM, as you are. We submitted an OSS note and are awaiting a response from SAP as of 08/08/11.
