Hi Folks -
One of our customer has a value of 53¼ × 79½ in a field called Width which is of data type Text. When they export this field via dataport it exports it like looks like 53< X 79} in the notepad when they open the file. All other fields are fine.
Does anyone know any solution for this. Any help is highly appreciated.

I think Thomas are right. Except in your case using dataports, there is a different way to do.
The reason is that NAV natively only handles the ASCII character set, whereas Windows expect it to be in ANSI format. So you need a function to convert the text before exporting it.
You can see how to do it this old post from 2004:
There is even a link to the function at Mibuso.
Have a great day, Erik
