Symptoms

After installing Oracle Financial Services Analytical Applications Infrastructure (OFSAAI) 7.3.5.3 <Patch 25502305> - OFSAA 7.3.5.0.0 AAI ML RELEASE #3 (7.3.5.3.0), 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:

[17365] Please do not enter disallowed special characters



The error is triggered by the asterisk (*).  However, you expect OFSAAI 7.3.5.3 to allow these types of special characters.

Note: OFSAAI 7.3.5.3 should only prohibit the following special characters in the DEFQ forms: single quote ('), double quite ("), pipe (|), and backslash (\).
