After installing Oracle Financial Services Analytical Applications Infrastructure (OFSAAI) <Patch 25502305> - OFSAA AAI ML RELEASE #3 (, you cannot enter special characters in the Data Entry (DEFQ) forms.  For example, you cannot enter a value like "/*+ NO_INDEX(ledger_stat) */" into a character column.  You get the following error:
