Issue/Introduction

The CODE object EBCDIC_01141 contains a general currency character in position line F, column 9 instead of the expected €

 

Additionally, in other tables:

EBCDIC_00037 (€ is displayed instead of general currency sign € )
EBCDIC_00273 (€ is displayed instead of general currency sign €)
EBCDIC_00500 (€ is displayed instead of general currency sign €)

Cause

A problem has been fixed where the Euro sign (€) was missing in the Codetable EBCDIC_001141.

The Euro sign was added to its designated position at 9F (column 9, line F).

 

Environment

Release : 12.2 / 12.3

Component : AUTOMATION ENGINE

Resolution

Workaround:

Update to a fix version listed below or a newer version if available.

Fix version:
Component(s): Automation Engine

Automation.Engine 12.2.7 - available since 2nd October 2020

Additional Information

According to EBCDIC_037, EBCDIC_273 and EBCDIC_500 these Codetables should all contain the common currency symbol ¤.

In AWI,however, the euro symbol € is displayed.
After some research, it was found out that in the DB these codetables are saved in a binary format encoded with ISO_8859_1.

There, they all have the currency symbol ¤ saved in but the Euro symbol € is shown in AWI.

That is because the euro symbol € is not available in the ISO_8859_1 encoding and therefore AWI always displays the euro symbol € instead of the currency sign ¤.
