Issue:
1. Jobs cannot be executed when the VARIANT name in SAP is ENTREPÔT+7J and this name is used in Dollar Universe (problem can also occur on UVC).
DUAS accepts only the VARIANT with this name ENTREPÃ ”T+7J, which is the name that is shown in the listing of the XPB2 Uproc.
 If the name is forced to ENTREPÔT+7J than the uproc will abort with this error messages in their job log.

===================== SUBMISSION ERROR ===================== 
can't close job [UPR_SAP750_001]
------------------------------------------------------------ 
BAPI error number : 059
id : XM
message : The specified job does not have any steps
msg v1 : BAPI_XBP_JOB_CLOSE
============================================================ 

abort
====================================================================================

2. It is impossible to open the variable list of a Variant with such a name.

3. The same problem concerns Jobname with special characters

4. The problem concerns exclusively caracters like 'ä', 'ë' or 'ù' but not '\' or '/' which are part of the standard ASCII code page.
Environment:
Dollar Universe 6.6 or superior with Manager for SAP
Cause:
This problem has been introduced in Dollar Universe with the implementation of the new RFC library in version 6.6.x and superior

 
Resolution:
This problem should be fixed on Dollar Universe 6.9.41 which will be released 1st October 2018.
