Infosphere Metadata Workbench: Extension mapping documents are corrupted if they were imported by using an CSV file in Shift_JIS encoding

Technote (troubleshooting)


When you import extension mapping documents by using a file in a CSV format and in Shift_JIS encoding, the extension mapping documents are corrupted.


Only UTF-8 encoding is supported.


Corruption of extension mapping documents occurs in any operating system and with any locale.

Resolving the problem

Convert the CSV import file from Shift_JIS encoding to UTF-8 encoding, and then re-import.
