thanks for the comment.

I need to replace these characters in python but struggling a bit. Its an apostrophe character  which is getting converted to these characters and causing the problem. please see the attached screenshot for the characters which I see when i open the received file in notepad. These characters change when I try copying pasting them here. How can we possibly replace them in python?

thanks
