[SOLVED] How to display special charcters on report

I have a special charcter, its a legal section character (§§) that I need to get onto my report without it changing to question marks as an output. The Hex code for the character is A7. Can anyone help me with this?

I think the function you are looking for is HEXBYT. You can find more information on it in the help file. I don't know if that specific value is in there, but you can check. theres a link to a list of characters. Also I believe this will depend on you NLS settings and the type font you are using as well. The character would need to be supported by each of those too.

Hi Nguyet,

Welcome to the forum!!!

After setting the code page value is 1252 in Reporting Server Console, believe, you'll be able to see §
-SET &char=HEXBYT(167,'A1');
-TYPE &char

the section symbol is & # 1 6 7 = § or & s e c t = §
here's a reference
http://www.ascii.cl/htmlcodes.htm
and you can use them in your fex, remembering to use the escape character for the ampersand
&|#167; or &|sect;

As long as you use the correct code pages in WebFOCUS this character will be visible in all outputs. Use 137 not 437 on the server and 137 on the client.

Thank you all for your suggestions. I did use &|#167 and it worked out perfectly.
