While submitting a job (Data Pool publish to Datamaker), the job runs fine.  However, when using the same Generator for Portal, Portal returns a file with what looks like encoded data for one of the columns. While validating the row on the Generator through Data Painter, this encoded data doesn't seem to appear. It only does during publish. Other important point to include, the File Definition (FD) has more than 150 columns.

TDM 4.2

This is caused by an error in the code.
