Export/Import BEL characters as parameter using automation engine.

Discussion created by Malik_Abdul_8942 on Aug 4, 2017

Question:

I have come across customer that have asked if we can export/import BEL characters as parameter using automation engine.

The answer is that the automation engine only support single byte characters. If BEL character is entered within the UI and stored within the DB and the object is opened again and '?' is returned the values could not be stored correctly within the DB!
‘?’ is always returned for characters which cannot be translated/shown.

Workaround:

You can create a VARA object which will store the BEL character. Anytime you need to use BEL character, you call the VARA object and the BEL character will replace the delimiter.
