Characters being displayed as #

Q – Why on some peoples PC’s may a character may be displayed as a #, where on other peoples PC’s the character is displayed correctly, for example when using a Cyrillic character.

A – Different PC’s may have different character sets. To check which character set is installed with the SAP GUI, proceed as follows:

Open SAP, select Customizing of local layout icon (or press ALT+F12) -> select Options (I18N), on the IME tab, check the IME Library and the “character set.”

This takes the presumption that both PC’s are looking at the same system and running the same version of SAP with the same code page installed.
