Inside the "Data Importer" module, importing a text file that contains characters with accents can in certain circumstances read them incorrectly.


Release : 17.2

Component : CA Asset Portfolio Management


To avoid importing junk characters for Spanish characters by default, one should install ITAM on Windows Server Spanish locale. Then create an import with Data File Locale= Spanish and use the data file to import.


However, if the server has already been installed in US English locale, there is another option. You may fix this problem by following the below steps:

1. Open the data.csv file in Notepad

2. Go to File -> Save As 

3. In the save prompt window, choose encoding as UTF-8 and Click Save.

4. Use this file to import the Object.
