Clarification on oss note 886703 for Date Format Error

Hello Experts. Yann was very helpful in directing me to oss note 886703 which address my issue in detail. I need some help in understanding the note. After applying the note and setting a couple of parameters there seems to be an additional step which is not clear. It reads as follows:

a) Open the saplbbp_sc_ui_its120.html template and implement the changes as specified in the <b>saplbbp_sc_ui_its_12.txt</b> template.

I checked in se80 and in the note and cannot find the .txt file. Can someone please explain. Thank you

Hi Jocelyne,

This is because txt is not well interpreted by html

If you save as (right click) the file to your desktop and then rename it by chnaging the extension from .html to .txt, you will have the content :
