Problem summary

    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    The u-umlaut charavter was being converted when being exported
    from non-NLS systems and reimoported to NLS systems.
    ****************************************************************
    RECOMMENDATION:
    A patch has been produced which reduces the restriction to the
    characters 254 and 255 in certain textual fields. The fields
    where the restriction is lifted are Description, Prompt,
    HelpTxt, AnnotationText, FullDescription.
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • This problem was caused by an undocumented limitation that a
    small number of high end characters are not supported in non-NLS
    versions of DataStage as they coincide with the mark characters
    used by the undepinning repository.
