You are trying to import plan data into S/4HANA Cloud system using App Import Financial Plan Data.

After you import the csv. template, you find the charactors become mess codes.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open App Import Financial Plan Data.
  2. Import plan data which contains other language.
  3. Check the result.


The imported .csv must be in UTF-8 encoding to make sure other languages are imported correctly.


First, you can download the template file in the App Import Financial Plan Data. Then input necessary data. When saving the file, you can choose Save As into "CSV UTF-8(Comma delimited)" format.


Then you can import the new .csv file with App Import Financial Plan Data. The charactors will show correctly.
