Web Application Designer Appearing in Unicode (UTF-8)

Hello All,

I am trying to run a BW 3.x query through the Web Application Designer. The query is displayed as a hierarcy and is expanded to the key figure structure. The query runs fine in Excel and on the Web. However, when I add the query to the Web Applicaiton Designer, it appears in Unicode (UTF-8) and looks like a bunch of random characters. I can fix this my selecting View --> Encoding --> User Defined on my Internet Explorer toolbar, but I can't expect end users to have to do this as well. Does anyone know why this is happening? I have built quite a bit of reports in the WAD and have never had this problem. Also, I have several other WAD reports working that have the hierarchy display in them.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You!

Hi Tina,

You have to save the template in the WAD when you are in the HTML tab. If you change back to the Layout tab and save it will automatically change back to unicode.

Hope it helps.
