Resolution

symptom
Double byte characters such as those found in the Japanese language appear as binary characters when editing the data modeling table.

symptom

When viewing the modeling data, double byte characters appear correctly. When editing the modeling data, the modeling interface displays binary charcters in place of the double byte Japanese characters.



fix

This is a known issue.  The workaround is to manually modify the model table in the database using Microsoft Access 2000.

  1. Exit DMA.
  2. Browse to the database at \Program Files\NetIQ\DMA\Projects\(Project Name).
  3. Open the database file that corresponds to your project name.
  4. With the 'Objects' (left column of Access) set to 'Tables', open the Model table.
  5. Each column in this database corresponds to the same field in the modeling interface in DMA.  Identify the accounts that you wish to model by the 'objName' column.  You may make modeling changes to any column except 'objName'.
  6. After your changes have been made, close Access and open DMA to continue your migration.
