Unknown Symbols

Hi,

While processing some files, we do encounter some unknown symbols which due to this XI doesn't process the files.

It was a hard task for us to check each individual line item to look for any unusual symbols.

I spent one hour to check a file of 10000 records by splitting and executing it in XI.

Is there any easy way of finding these unknown symbols or some interpreters to do this.

We have a .csv files which had these symbols.

Regards

Krish

    You need to first identify which character encoding does these symbols fall into. Then you can use this encoding while the file transfer occurs.

    Hi Krish,

    As already prateek mentioned until unless you know in which encoding they fall into you can make a decision. So based upon a few characters see in wihch encoding they are falling and use it accordingly.
