We have an issue. The application is providing a text with Degree symbol and the partner expects same in the EDI document . But the Transaltor mapping as .
Source : SOLIDS CONTENT @ 20 °C / 68 °F
Target: SOLIDS CONTENT @ 20 Â°C / 68 Â°F
What I am understanding is : The degree sign (which is extended ascii code “167” ) is not supported by webMethods EDI since it is out of the range of basic ASCII (either 0-127 or 1-128, depending on if it is zero-based index). I think, because of this, we are seeing garbage characters in EDI.
Anybody got this issue before?
WebMethods Release notes says :
“ As required by the EDI standards supported by the webMethods EDI Module version 6.5.2, ASCII or a subset of ASCII character set is supported. Extended character sets may be used in X12 and UN/EDIFACT if communicating parties agree. Those extended character sets have not been specifically tested but should work reliably”
