Although worked in the past, Globo does not allow special characters anymore, including currency symbols and accented letters of main Latin languages.

If this is going to continue, I think we should warn Globies that when their enter special characters, those will be replaced with question marks, hash marks, etc., so they need to be careful as certain names of places would be changed beyond recognition.

Kind regards
Krys

Hi Krys, can you give me an example on how I can reproduce this? Is it on travel reports or where exactly?

I have recently upgraded the Database Software which might be the cause.

Andy,

I just noticed that same thing has happend to my report on Siem Reap. Whilst currency symbols are working, the apostrophe's aren't:

This may assist you in locating the issue.

Thanks

Amanda

Hi Andy,

It seems that it is a problem everywhere; reports, travel logs, etc. I think there are examples in my Budapest report and many travel logs, incl one on Helsinki. Euro currency does not work and letters like ?, ?, ?, ?, č, ?, etc. Also in material submitted a long time ago, when it all worked well.

Kind regards
Krys

Hi krisek,

I saw this character problem in my first message to GLOBO, I started to work on it and hope to get it resolved soon.

Thanks for your feedback.

Ok, i think it's solved, I made some testing and characters show correctly on messages and text.

Best regards,

Pablo.

Hi Pablo,

Many thanks for working on this. I can still see a few issues. If you look up the history of this group entry, you will see that most special characters I typed are still showing as question marks. Also, my recent report on Foz do Iguacu shows a question mark for the Portuguese 'a con bigote'.

Does this mean that the hitorical entries will not get corrected?

Best regards
Krys

Hi Krisek,

I'm afraid the old entries witch had that character problem are impossible to fix, due to they are already saved in the database with the bad characters, I'm really sorry about that, but I realized that in not possible to change the entries inserted on the database during the period that the problem was active (about 2 months). But from now on the problem is fixed, so anything you write will be OK with chars.

I really apologize about that.

Best regards.
