OBIEE Quirky Report Name

Have you ever noticed when a report name starts with  “CON”, the file system name will be converted to “co%6E”.


Let start an insider joke: “It’s the usenet handle of the original programmer ;-)”

Anyhow it’s one of those things you will have to keep in  mind when scripting reports.

Till Next Time

Hi John,

Maybe the programmer was french and wanted to prevent usage of foul language ;-)

* captcha: distacto. Someone not tactful?

I tried to name a report CONISSUES and it does not name it to co%6E ... am I missing something?

It only happens when a reports name start with Con: co%6eissues.atr
