When a Course is loaded using HDL, and there is a separate text file included in the which contains the Syllabus, the line breaks which are included in the Syllabus text file are not formatted correctly when checking in the UI after the load has completed. For example:

1) Create a folder called:


2) Inside C:temp\SyllabusTestCase create the Course.dat file.

3) Create a subfolder called ClobFiles

4) Put the file SyllabusTest.txt inside the ClobFiles directory.


5) Contents of the Course.dat



MERGE|Course|2021/01/01|4712/12/31|TEST_OLC_1|Test Clob Course|TestClobCourse Short Descr|SyllabusTest.txt|2021/01/01||1|2|SyllabusTextTest|123456

6) Content of SyllabusTest.txt

Test clob test (this is the title)

This is line 1

this is line 2 ("line 2")

This is line 3 ("Line 3")??? i am testing the characters etc.

This is a html link

7)  Load the from My Client Groups/Data Exchange.  The load goes through OK, but when checking in the UI, the line breaks have not been preserved in the Syllabus, so everything is shown on one line.

8)  Similarly if a learner searches for the course, clicks on it, expands the details, the Syllabus is not formatted correctly but shown all on one line.
