I have an environment where a client is on 8.5. I downloaded 11 latest release personal to build a test environment to replicate this setup. It is a RAIMA RDM DB with ODBC connectivity. I pull the raw data into QVD files and then do a final pull to create the usuable QVW files for production. I built this test environment to be sure I can migrate this setup to 11 for them. Same Includes, copied the scripts right from the working environment.... Same Data directory tree etc..... Now, with a pull to 11 I am getting strange characters and weird data in QVD files. I am getting "BI" instead of "BIZ", "19Y" instead of "199 and so forth"....... picture some alternate letters and foreign language style letters. Pulls just fine in 8.5. Do I need to declare data types in 11? Has anyone else seen this behavior? If I ODBC connect via MS Access the data is flawless....... Unfortunately I cannot upload the QVD file screenshot to show the exact characters I am getting instead of my actual data, so I attached it.
