Problem with special characters and xmldom.writetoclob

I have a problem with oracle parser in pl/sql.
My situation:
i have a clob with valid xml with for example decoded characters:
(spaces between & and # are for good representing characters by browser - in really there is no spaces)
<any><![CDATA[ & #187; ]]> text <![CDATA[ & #187; ]]></any>
i read this xml from clob, parse it and put into another clob by using
xmldom.writetoclob procedure.
And in second clob i have"
<any>& #38;#187; text & #38;#187; </any>
(ampersand is representing as & #38; !) Why there is not the cdata sections ?
Why the value of these sections changed?
Any ideas? I'm using newset xdk (9202) in database.
Please help!

Hi John,
According to your description, my understanding is that the Author showed incorrect character in SharePoint 2013 search result page.
I tested the same scenario per your post in my environment, and the Müller showed correctly in SharePoint search result page.
I recommend to reset the index in Search Service Application and run a full crawl to see if the issue still occurs.
Best regards.

  • Problem with special characters and search

    In our SP environment (Build Version 15.0.4420.1017) we have the following problem:
    We upload a Word document containing the name Müller in its Authors field.
    After upload the author name gets displayed normally in the library. We can check that by adding a new column "_Author" in the library.
    When searching for the document, the search results display the author Müller as M�ller. This issue is probably due to the Search Indexer.
    Has this been fixed in any of the SharePoint Updates, or is a fix planned in the near future?
    I just noticed the following post, but the answer is not really convincing. This is clearly a bug.

  • Problems with special characters like "u00F6" "u00E4" "u00FC"

    we currently face some major problems with special characters like "ö" "ä" "ü". First I thought it is a SP02 specific problem but it still doesn't work with SP03.
    When I start an import the import manager shows correct converted value. "ö"s "ä"s "ü"s are displayed correctly. But after I've done the import I look into the Data manager and I see instead of these characters charcaters like "&#776;". (note: the character should show a little square box - but the forum cannot desplay it)
    How can I solve this problem?

    Hi Nico
      Just try it out the following steps, hope it solves ur issue.
    <b>To set one or more values back to their original values:</b>
    1. In the Import Manager Source Values grid, select the values that you want to set back to their original values.
    2. Right-click on one of the values and choose Set to Original Value from the context menu, or choose Values > Apply Value Conversion Filter > Set to Original Value from the main menu.
    3. MDME sets each value back to its original value, which appears in black in the Source Values grid.
    <b>NOTE : You can use the Set to Original Value filter only at the value-level and not at the field level.</b>

  • Problems with special characters in InputStream or XPath

    Hello everyone,
    I am having problems with special characters such as ", ', - and so on, everything becomes ? (questionmark). (Not with special nordic characthers (å,æ,ø) though.)
    The encoding of the XML is UTF-8, and the server that holds the webservice is setting encoding to UTF-8 also, so no conflict there.
    What I have done is something like this:
    String url = ""; // This is not the feed I use, it is a custom XML document
    InputSource is = new InputSource(url);
    DocumentBuilderFactory fct = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance();
    DocumentBuilder builder = fct.newDocumentBuilder();
    Document doc = builder.parse(is);
    Element rootElement = doc.getDocumentElement();
    XPathFactory factory = XPathFactory.newInstance();
    XPath xPath = factory.newXPath();
    out.print(xPath.evaluate("/rss/channel/title", rootElement)); // The xml is not a RSS feed, this is just an example.
    Please let me know what I am doing wrong, or give me a hint of how to solve this in another way.
    Best regards,

    Hello, thanks for you reply. I had to rewrite your code a little, and I think that your code would not really compile, if you tried yourself :-)
    I ended up with something like this:
    our environment is running in 1.4 mode, so I could not use the for-each loop :-(
    public String printEntities(String s) {
         char[] sArray = s.toCharArray();
         StringBuffer sb = new StringBuffer();
           for (int i = 0; i < sArray.length; i++) {
             if (sArray[i] > 256)
                  sb.append("&#x" + Integer.toHexString(sArray) + ";");
         } else
         return sb.toString();

  • Problem with special characteres

    Hi. I have a problem with java. I�m making an application that works with special characters and displays correctly on my local machine, as I use escape characters such as &igrave; for �. The problem is when I deploy the application on a unix machine. All of the special characters (�, �, �, etc) appear like a �?� (question mark). Any tips, please?
    Thanks in advance

Any tips, please?First step: read [this excellent introduction into Unicode|], it will give you the basics you need to solve this problem.
    How do you input and output those characters? Simply print them to the console? Or write them to a HTML file (since you mention &<something>; notation)?
    "?" is normally the result when you convert a String (which is always in UTF-16 encoding in Java) to an encoding that can't represent your characters (ASCII for example).

  • Problems with special characters in JSP app

    I am working for a JSP application which uses special characters.
    The database used is a Novell MySQL version, it is fine.
    I use Tomcat, Apache.
    I do not think that the versions are important.
    ON NT:
    The application works fine with special characters.
    Obs: I tried only with Tomcat; I didn't use Apache.
    If I try to insert some special characters,
    they arrive just fine into the database.
    The problem is when I want to display them.
    I tried with jsp directive to set the charset,
    or with HTML meta tag - no result al all.
    Everytime I use the same work station, and the same browser to do the tests.
    Please help with any ideas.
    Another question, maybe relayed:
    Can I set Tomcat so that when it creates the servlets it uses a custom charset I can indicate?

    The characters I want to use are french characters, e-acute, etc.
    I take the data with request.getParameter, POST method, etc.

  • Problem with special characters getting converted into '#'  in portal

    Hi All,
    The special characters like " - ", " ' ", " ` ",  are getting converted into '#' when the smartform is displayed in portal.
    I have a smart form in which the text contains the above special characters and they are getting displayed as  ' # ', when the form is invoked in portal. We are not able to trace the problem.
    I need your input on this ASAP.
    Thanks in Advance,

    This could be caused by conversion routine on the field.
    in sapscript, can use &FIELD-NAME(K)& to ignore conversion routine
    To see this and other options, in text edit of script select menu option Insert>Symbols>New  and then type field name and select desired check box options - field will be placed in script with relevant formatting characters

  • Problem with specials characters like '€' or 'œ'

    I'm having troubles with specials characters such as '€' or 'œ'.
    I use an application connected to a database on a w2003 server.
    Characterset of the database is FRENCH_FRANCE.WE8MSWIN1252.
    In my workstation the value of [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ORACLE\HOME0\NLS_LANG] is also FRENCH_FRANCE.WE8MSWIN1252.
    But when I type such specials characters through the application, they are replaced by '¿' in the database. The datatype of this column is varchar2.
    Can anyone help me ?

  • Dtterm and xterm - problems with special characters

    I run SGD 4.2 on a Solaris 8 box with 50 users globally. This installation replaces a 3.42 installation. Clients are all Solaris 8.
    Currently my most nagging problem is that I have "special characters" (at least on a german keyboard layout). @, �, `, ' are not working in xterm or dtterm, while they did on 3.42.
    As we have users connecting from all over the world, I have no idea how to fix this, so every user has "his/her own" keyboard setup.
    So far I tried with and without "Lock keymap" in Object Manager | Attributes | Advanced
    and "Use LANG variable" vs. "Use client's input locale" in Array Manager | X Protocol Engine | Keyboard Map.
    I'm quite new new to SDG and look for an Amin training currently, but this is too urgent to wait for this. Anyone an idea, please?

    Did you get an answer after 3 years?? :-)
    Whe do have the same problem.
    SUSE 10.1 sp1
    SSGD portal.
    Only when we connect thru de portal whe have this problem.
    When we connect straight to a terminal server and we open Winword than it ok, but when we open thru the terminal server de portal and logon to it, than then keyboard setting is changed.
    Any help??

  • Problems with special Characters in filenames and folders

    My problem is that i have a small portlet which lists some files under each other. These files have sometimes the special character & in there name.
    If now a person clicks with right mousebutton on such a link, the saving dialog only shows a cryptik filename.
    filename = harry&sally.pdf
    rightclick and saving the file the new name is something like: 2C576B9904F63BBEE040200A2A040606.pdf
    All other files even if they have blank characters or characters like ä, ö ... it works but not with &.
    Do anyone could say me how i can manage this?
    Message was edited by:
    Oliver Lemm

    having special characters in filenames is not a safe and healthy practice as you may see. this is specially true for the content that has to be displayed online using Oracle as Oracle uses <b>&</b> and <b>?</b> for passing parameter values in dynamic URLs. </p>
    I would recommend estimation of the cost of fixing filenames to tackle this issue rather than to get a way-around to just bury it again. if you are using Unix platform, it should not be more than a line worth of command to fix for all such files using stream-editors; in windows you may take some more. but i understand, changing filenames might require one to see the impact of those changes on all other places where these files have been called. </p>

  • Vibe 3.2 problems with special characters?

    I'm not sure where the issue lies here, the client or Vibe, so I'll throw

    Android phone or his Android tablet, he gets a bad password error. Using a
    different browser on the tablet, he was able to get logged in. Using my

    Yes, you're right. Same issue here with a '' character. Found this:
    '6.2 Character Restrictions in Usernames and Passwords
    Do not use extended characters or double-byte characters in Novell Vibe usernames and passwords.
    This includes usernames and passwords that are synchronized from an LDAP directory into Vibe.
    This limitation is caused by the open source Spring Security (
    spring-security/site) that Vibe uses for authentication, in combination with the various authentication
