JD Edwards tables fields of CHAR type are being converted as GRAPHIC type, when the table is generated from Object Management Workbench (OMW) on the fat Client.

In this scenario, the user detected this issue in the development environment (post migration to tools release for custom tables that are created or modified and then regenerated from the fat client, the fields of these DB tables that are CHAR type are being converted into GRAPHIC type.

Before generating table in OMW, the table field is still reflecting as CHAR type in the database.


After generating table in OMW, the table field is converted to GRAPHIC type in the database.

Is there a way to still create the field as CHAR type in the database as the custom table is needed for interface with 3rd party software?
