In Desktop Integration Suite (DIS) Outlook Integration, Drag-and-Drop Actions using Special Characters in the File Name Results in File Corruption (Doc ID 2002961.1)

Last updated on MAY 13, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Content - Version 11.1.1.8.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Attempt to Drag-and-Drop in Outlook Integration a MicroSoft (MS) Word file (e.g. R&B.docx) to a folder in WebCenter Content Server, results in the ampersand stripped from the file name and the file is changed to a .msg file (i.e. RB.docx.msg).  Attempt to open the file in the new location fails because the extension is wrong.  Attempt to drag-and-drop the same file in Windows Explorer Integration, the action fails with an illegal character error.
