Error description

  • In previous Cognos Versions ie 8.4.1 ? could be used as a value
    for the advanced parameter RSVP.CSV.QUALIFIER. Output would be
    created as expected and "?" would be properly qualified.?In
    Cognos 10.2 for example "ab?cd" gets turned into ?ab??cd? and
    ab?cd stays ab?cd. If you use another qualifier like |
    everything works.?? is Unicode #166 , testing showed that
    characters higher then #128 showed problematic behavior in 10.2.
    But worked in Version 8.4.1 and lower.?
    

Local fix

  • Use a Unicode symbol in the range up to 128
