PeopleSoft Enterprise HCM Human Resources - Version 9.1 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

After applying Patch 23012129 to a test instance (to remove special characters from ACA transmittal file to the IRS), customers ran into an issue where a first name or a last name had a tildes accent over one of the letters: that letter with the tilde is completely removed in the XML transmittal file.

For example, the accent over the 'u' in Jesus. In our test file, that letter with the tilde is completely removed in the XML transmittal file. So Jesus becomes Jess in the XML transmittal file.
