Good Morning experts,
I'm new to XSLT and working on fixing an issue with an existing application writen by ex employee that is no longer availiable to comunicate with. The program works correctly with one execption. It accesses data and creates an export text file for upload to an old loan servicing system which requires a text file in either .csv or .dat format. The data is correctly appended together in the correct format and the file extention works fine but whenever I open the file in the upload interface it shows three junk characters at the start of the file. The same characters every time, a lower case i with two dots rather than one, then two > chacaters close together then an upside down ? then the expected data. These do not show up when I open the file in excel or notpad + or notepad, or wordpad etc. These same items appear weather I create the text file as .dat or .csv. If I open them in any text editor and then save the file they still appear in the upload interface but if I open the text file in excel and save it they go away. Any ideas anyone?
