    Replace ASCII character 2 (STX, Start of text) with blanks


      We import Microsoft Axapta data from an Oracle db. Empty values aren't filled with the value NULL or a space but with an ascii character 2 ( chr(2) ). This character means 'Start of text'. Qlikview shows a square. Our goal is to change this value in an empty string value.

      We can use the PurgeChar function for each field of each table. This will be a lot of work. Is there a command or a function we can use in the beginning of our script to do a replace for every instances of our database? Otherwise, can we loop through every table and every field to do a PurgeChar after loading of all the tables?

      Kind regards,
