====================================================================================================================

Diagnosis

    Only the following standard characters are valid in characteristic

    values by default:

    !"%&''()*+,-./:;<=>?_0123456789ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ.

    Furthermore, characteristic values that only consist of the character #

    or that begin with ! are not valid.

    You are trying to load the invalid characteristic value DI-Vertical &

    (hexidecimal representation 00440049002D0056006500720074006900630061006C

    ).

System Response

Procedure

Procedure for System Administration

    Try to change the invalid characters to valid characters.

    If you want values that contain invalid characters to be admitted into

    the system, make the appropriate setting in BW Customizing . Refer to

    the documentation describing the requirements for special characters and

    the possible consequences.
