Monitoring Studio: Unexpected Output for a String Search
KB1017 - Sep 24, 2009
The flat/log file string search returns a value different than the expected one when using the unsupported Unicode file format.
For example, the string 'Financial forecast' present in a flat/log file will return the expression "ÿp2" instead.
If the file was generated from a database, configure your database to export its log files in ASCII mode instead of Unicode.
For a flat file, convert it to the ASCII format.
