Oracle Fusion General Ledger - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Using file based loader to load chart of account (COA) values. The COA values have a description in a foreign language that includes special characters. All account values that contain special characters, such as 'Årets resultat' in the description, are loaded but the special character is displayed as ´┐Żets resultat.

Expect to be able to see the special characters as they were entered.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Use the ChartofAccountsSegmentValuesandHierarchiesImport Template and enter special characters in the account value description
2. Do the upload and see that the special characters are not displayed correctly.
