When making a connection in MSExcel with a published Odata Service, the following error appears: 'special sign' hexadecimal value 0x03, is an invalid character. Line 1, position 194185. I cannot find the special sign in the database after dumping this to a text file. (MSSQL database and dump via database). I have tried to put the log-levels from all the Connection* to trace but this does not help. How can I find this special sign and is there a way to detect special signs in my database in order to make the OData services work?
