I think I could not clarify my concern. Apologies for that. We do not have any formatting issue. We are using the field in a Prompt with operator as 'is equal to/is in'. So when the query gets formed, the where clause is coming as -
field _name = 'abcd'
whereas we want it to be
field_name = 'abcd '
Because in the database our value is 'abcd ',as the datatype is char.
We could find a resolution to use 'Contains any' operator instead. But there are hundreds of reports using this field in prompt. Also there is some reason the application do not want to change the datatype in databse to varchar. I needed to know if somehow we can retain the blank spaces in presentation layer.
