When a user creates a template and uploads it into Oracle, the template name is filled with special characters. Every time the template is updated, the special characters change. This causes problems when trying to query the template to run the report.

These are example steps to reproduce this issue:

1. Create a template for an Financial Statement Generator report in excel and upload it.

The upload works . The confirmation window shows 2 names listed.
Template HP test Template W306 successfully uploaded to the Template Manager
Template HP+test+Template+W306 successfully uploaded to the Template Manager

When they run a report template, HP test Template W306 can be selected but template HP+test+Template+W306 is not in the list.

2. Now modify an existing template.

3. Click modify existing and place a partial value in the template name search field.

4. Click Go and the following screen is displayed. Notice the template names have + signs:

5. Select the template and make a change.

6. Save the template by selecting Add-Ins>Oracle>Upload.

7. Leave the name as is with + signs, and select overwrite existing template and Enable Drill then Click Upload

After the template is uploaded the confirmation is displayed. Notice the first name has + signs where the second name contains “+”.
Template HP+W306+UPCP+Con+Financial+Stmnt successfully uploaded to the Template Manager
Template HP+W306+UPCP+Con+Financial+Stmnt successfully uploaded to the Template Manager

8. Run a report and when selecting the template, use a partial value. Notice the name contains + signs:
