Unicode Text valuelist compare with Normal Text value
I've searched for a solution but I can't find it.
The problem is the following. I've a Unicode sorted Value List with Employee names.
This value list is used in a global field to filter a portal. The records in the portal have text field with the employee values. The problem is that when i manually type the name the filter in the portal works but when I use the pull-down with the Unicode value list it doesn't work.
The conclusion till now is that when I use Code() I can see there are more characters with the value from the value list then when you type it manually.
Is there a function or solution for this?
