There is replication issue with special character like Euro '€' while performing initial load. Below is detail
- If using special character like Euro '€' in source then extract abends.
- When not using special character like Euro '€' then replication is working fine and remote trail file exists. Trail file also contains data records.
- If normal table mapping without SQLEXEC with function is used then initial load extract works fine. Issue is with sqlexec.
- Facing same problem with other special characters too. Source and Target both have same character set WE8ISO8859P15.

- Using PASSTHRU with SQLEXEC as below

Extract (initial load):
USERID <Goldengate username>, PASSWORD ***
RMTHOST <hostname>,mgrport <port>
RMTFILE <file_name>
TABLE <owner>.<table_name>, TARGET <owner>.<table_name2>,
COLCHARSET(PASSTHRU,<col_name>), sqlexec (spname <owner>.<datamsking_func1>,id lookupFLD_241, params(champ=<col_name>),ERROR REPORT),
colmap(<col_name>=@IF(@COLTEST(<col_name>,MISSING),'ABC',@getval(lookupFLD_241.RETURN_VALUE)), usedefaults);
