I am writing a program that exports data from Active Directory that will save the data in LDIFDE format. The problem I an having is some times using LDIFDE it knows to encode the field in Base64 eg info:: . However it only seems to do it under certain circumstances. So what are the conditions (rules) which goven when this will and won't happed so I don't create invalid data when I export. (So at the moment sometimes I put invalid characters in there and don't know I should of encoded the field).
Hope this makes sense hard to explain :)
