P6 Professional Text Field Displaying Hex Values Instead Of Special Characters. (Doc ID 2276398.1)

Last updated on JUNE 04, 2019

Applies to:

Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management Cloud Service - Version and later
Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Special characters in text fields are displaying as hex characters in the Client where the Web displays them correctly.

Characters should display the same in the Client as they do in the Web.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Launch P6 Web.
2. Go to the Projects list.
3. Change the layout to include a text column.
4. Observe the field with something in a date format (5/15/17) displays correctly.
5. Launch P6 Client.
6. Go to Enterprise / Projects.
7. Add the same text column to the layout.
8. Observe that the "/" in the date format of the text is displaying as "&#x2F".
