Stores Tables - cell shows blank when replacing text in the editor


Stores Tables - cell shows blank when replacing text in the editor

I want to update 3 cells in a Table in the Stores collection. To edit a cell I open the Table Editor, click in the cell which highlights the text, hit delete to clear the text, then paste in the new text and hit Enter.

This works fine in two of the three cells, but for reasons I can't figure out, one of the cells shows blank after I copy the new text and hit Enter. I can click in the apparently blank cell, type, and only see the cursor move, none of the text I'm typing shows.

I'm wondering if it is a length issue because this value is much longer than the other two values that I'm editing, but I can't find documentation on this. The value that I'm deleting isn't any shorter than the new text, but it is broken up into lines, whereas the replacement value contains all the text on a single line.

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance!




but the table data itself is not readable.

Yes... Though I hope that data is just encoded using some common algorithm.

You may try to copy cell's data from the file into clipboard and then check if the copied data can be decoded using, for example, Fiddler tool and its Tools|Text Wizard dialog.
