Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

An INPUT parameter in an SQR job published in Workspace is fed with an SQL request to an Oracle database with character set WE8ISO8859P1. In the INPUT parameter, the option "Choice of values obtained from a SQL query" is selected in "Display parameter on form as".  In "Presentation", a drop-down list is being used to display the list of values.

The values coming from the database contain accents.

The accented characters are replaced by small squares in the drop-down list when the SQR job is run in Workspace.
