Export global table with 3-byte characters to database

Hi all,

I'm trying to export my global table to the database(MySQL). But the exporting fails.

My guess is that because the column name has 3-byte characters. Is it possible to use 3-byte characters in the column name?

Using 3-byte characters is crucial for me because I'm Japanese.

Can you translate a Japanese 3-byte character into the byte metrics of [0,1] or hexadecimal number and export them as a string?

I can export Japanese 3-byte characters as cell values.

But when the column name of the Global Table includes Japanese character, I can't export that table regardless of its cell values.

Sorry for my very late reply.

Now I'm using FlexSimJapanese 22.0.4.

I tryed wrapping the column name that contains 3-byte characters in brackets.

1. When the Global Table column name contains 3-byte characters

Brackets worked well. I succeeded in export.

2. When the database column name contains 3-byte characters

Brackets didn't work. The error message was like the following.

exception: Exception thrown in database export: Unknown column '[取得時刻]' in 'field list'

What should I do if the database column name has 3-byte characters?

Hey @Yokota T, could you give me an example of some 3-byte characters you're using for your Database column names? I've tested a few 3-byte characters and haven't had any luck replicating the error.
