  • element name

    Hi,

    I also have problems with long element names with french accents; has somebody understood the rules that must be followed ? I do not find anything in the palo manual.

    The java palo api works well to allow creation from my file and the java client shows the names OK, l but paste view cannot show some of the element names in EXCEL, neither on rows, pages or columns.

    Hello L.Jaouan,

    The list of valid characters will be in the upcoming version of the Palo manual.

    Allowed in element/database/dimension/cube names:
    ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789_-.

    The element names are not allowed to begin/end with a blank and contain
    chars with character code < 32, like TAB, Return etc..

    Name of databases/dimensions/cubes are not allowed to begin with a dot (".").

    Names of dimensions and cubes are not allowed to contain:
    \ / ? * : | < > and blanks

    Regards,
    Stephanie
