Pinned topic Issue with additional Polish Characters in veiwing in PIM

‏2013-04-29T11:45:46Z |

Hi,

Currently we are using for all imports configured using Cp1252 encoding and also in scripts the files are parsed using this encoding.
Now some additional Polish characters are not able to import/view properly in PIM using the same encoding. We changed the encoding to Cp1250 too but still in PIM those characters are not viewable properly.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows-1250

We tried to change the default-charset-name/value also to Cp1250 but still the characters are not display as they are actually in import files in PIM.

What can we do to handle in import these additional characters??

Uploaded the sample file imported in PIM. To view the characters properly. In Notepad++, set the encoding as Cp1250..

Thanks,
Chetan

    I tried saving the characters from the .csv file into an attribute of type "String" and it worked fine(attached picture). Here are my settings from the $TOP/etc/default/common.properties file:

    charset_value=UTF-8
    charset_name=UTF-8
    default_charset_value=Cp1252
    default_charset_name=Default (Cp1252 - ANSI Latin 1)
    default_locale=en_US

    Add the same values in common.properties file, restart the server, and hopefully you will be able to save it as well. It should be noted however that starting from v-10 FP1, only those characters can be saved in items which are XML compatible. Please review the following technote for guidelines on how to deal with such circumstances: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21633581
