ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
Problems while uploading BPA using FBDI

While uploading BPA lines using FBDI template, special characters in the item description populated at line level (Scandinavian characters) are getting translated as junk characters when the BPA gets imported.
 

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
item description containing special characters to be imported correctly

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Populate FBDI template for blanket purchase agreement with Scandinavian characters in the item description column at line level for the description based items
2. Generate the zip and csv files and upload using Files Import and Export menu
3. Submit the 'Load Interface for import' ESS which loads the data into po_headers_interface and po_lines_interface
4. Submit the 'Import Blanket Agreement' ESS and BPA gets imported successfully. But on opening the BPA in UI, BPA line shows the item description with junk characters.
5. Populate FBDI template for blanket purchase agreement with the action as UPDATE at header level and also populate change order description at header level. At line level, populate a different unit price for the lines and populate the action as 'UPDATE'
6. Generate the zip and csv files and upload using Files Import and Export menu
7. Submit the 'Load Interface for import' ESS which loads the data into po_headers_interface and po_lines_interface
8. Submit the 'Import Blanket Agreement' ESS and BPA gets imported successfully. But the pdf output file shows the error "The value of the attribute is not valid" and BPA lines do not get updated successfully
