Please post your code.  I use the FSO frequently, and I always get ANSI text back from it...

 Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

    Set a = fs.CreateTextFile(FileName + " " + ConvertDt(Now) + ".txt", True)

    a.WriteLine (str)

luani,

OK, now how do you determine the value of your variable str?  Are sticking Unicode text into that variable?

I use normal characters, char(9) to separate values and char(13) for CRLF.

I use these files as input in another program which does not recognize them as ANSI. To make them recognizable I use ultraedit to save them as ANSI format. Then everything works fine.

ANSI 13 is just carriage return; typically you want ANSI 13 *and* ANSI 10 as your line delimiters.

Have you tried using vbCrLf instead of Chr(13)?
