Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the APP Maintain Business Partner
  2. Select the Address tab
  3. Input any specific characters


In general we allow every alphanumeric characters + special characters.

Special characters can only be maintained in combination with Alphabetic characters as in below examples.

  1. !@#$%^&*()[]{}++-_\|’”;:?/>.<, is not allowed.
  2. C!@#$%^&*()[]{}++-_\|’”;:?/>.<, is allowed.
  3. !@#$%^&*()[]{}++-_\|’”;:?/>.<,C is not allowed.

So if first character is a alphabetic characters and rest of are special it will be allowed, but other combination is not possible.

We do not throw any warning or error for not allowed cases, it will be just cleared off.
