Symptoms

Work with Payment Terms (P0014) has over 100 records and many have a % character in between text characters such as "1% 10, N30". When the first several records are displayed, the % sign is correctly rendered to the screen. However, when a lot of records are inquired, some of them will replace the % sign with a bad character. The data is fine in revision mode. It is only displaying funny characters in place of the % when a large number of records are rendered to the screen.


STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Enter Work with Payment Terms (P0014) and click Find
2. When the first several records are displayed, the % sign is correctly rendered to the screen.
3. Click the go to end button to bring in all the records.
4. Notice that lines later in the file shows garbage characters in place of the % character.
5. Go into the revisions screen and the % character is correctly displayed.
