You are correct in that "Account Types" used in row formats will NOT migrate over to MR 2012. I ran into this issue during my last FRx to MR migration and ended up having to reconfigure the row format (without account types) prior to running the migration process. Sorry to confirm the bad news. Hope the remainder of the migration goes well.
By the way, I just noticed also that MR 2012 does not like special characters in the category descriptions. Is there a list of what characters it accepts?
Are you referring to the account category descriptions which can be selected in the "Link to Dimensions" column (column J)? If yes, I am unaware of any character limitations as my current client uses account category descriptions with ( , () \ /) type values.
I apologize if I misinterpreted your question.
Nick, it does not appear to like the ampersand '&'
I have found that an & within the last few characters of the maximum defined field length acts up when passing through an xml translation because & may get expanded to & and then the code may truncate the string to the defined length before converting back, chopping off part of '&' and throwing an error. I make a pass and substitute a '-'.
Have a look on below link.
Hope this helps!!!
Note: Please mark it as verified, if this answer your question. Because this will helps to some others who experience the same.
