3488275 - How to convert a profile to an LF termination mode and imported again in RZ10


After importing a profile in the RZ10 transaction, every content line ends with an unexpected character or "#". However, the unexpected character is not visible if you edit the profile file at the OS level or even if you display the file in any other way in the SAP system (like AL11).

To recognize the file format and line termination, it is possible to use the command line "file" on Unix systems:

> file profile_file
profilefile: UTF-8 Unicode text, with CRLF line terminators    <- Wrong

> file profile_file
profile_file: ASCII text, with CRLF line terminators   <- Wrong

> file rofile_file
rofile_file: ASCII text      <- Correct
