What character set is used by the IBM TRIRIGA integration object?


I am trying to export foreign language data using integration object. Alphanumeric values are exported correctly, but I cannot figure out the character set used for foreign language values, namely Japanese. The Japanese values are displayed correctly when I look at the data from a browser, and the data is stored in UTF-8 in the database. But when I export the value out to a file using the integration object, the value is no longer in UTF-8. Does anyone know what character set the integration object uses? How I can change it to UTF-8?

You are absolutely right that it should use UTF-8, but after talking to a co-working and looking at some code it does not appear that is the case. Submit a PMR and reference RTC 292380 and include that you were referred by me to submit the PMR… This issue is tracked by APAR IJ02452.

IV82049: Exporting to Excel displays different decimal places


When exporting a TRIRIGA report to Excel format, only 3 decimal places are being displayed when there are clearly 4 in the report.

However, if the currency UOM for the number is Japanese Yen, it will display without decimals regardless.
