Hi all

We have an issue regarding punctuation in the Pentaho Spoon application.

Spoon is changing the following characters: “æ”, “ø” and “å” to “?”.

Here are some examples:
When creating an Excel input:
Name:  1.jpg
Views: 24
Size:  23.9 KB


Then I hit “OK” and save it.
If I close Spoon and open it again the job look like this:
Name:  2.jpg
Views: 26
Size:  24.5 KB
As you see are all the characters “æ”, “ø” and “å” replaces with “?”.



The environment consists of two AR servers (production and test) with BMC Atrium Core / Atrium Integrator installed.
It is only the production server that is facing this issue. The test server works perfect.
We have no issues regarding “æ”, “ø”, and “å” in BMC Remedy what so ever.

Maybe you can tell me where Spoon is saving these jobs etc.? Is it in the database?

Details about the test server:
Server version: 8.1.00.002 201308272305Hotfix
Atrium Core: 8.1
Pentaho Spoon: 4.1.0
Database: SQL Server 2008 R2 standard
