exactly what is your client seeing or experiencing that they believe is
incorrect?

Hello All:



I have a client that went live with 17.0 SP1 over the weekend. Apparently
they use the Tilde ~ character when adding text to Sales order text.



This is an IDMS-DC site, there is no UCFCICS.

Hello All:



What is happening is that when they were 15.0 SP5 they could enter the
Tilde
character in sales order text fields on the map. They say that they were
able to enter it under IDMS 15 but cannot in IDMS 17, below is a cut and
paste, so in conclusion we are getting a mapping run time error when the
users enter the Tilde character in a text field on a map.

Re: Tilde character
"This changed in R16 SP4. Prior to that, the tilde was included in the default code page. We got caught by it too. If you want to keep the tildes, you will need to create a customized version of RHDCCODE with this:

#DEFBYTE A1,ASCII=7E,TYPE=VALID tilde

instead of this:

#DEFBYTE A1,ASCII=7E,TYPE=HEX tilde
