extra character in text file?

CISS asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-29
I'm using Visual Studio 2010 (VB) and using this code to create a csv file:

Dim MyCSVWriter = My.Computer.FileSystem.OpenTextFileWriter(MyFileName, True)

MyCSVWriter = My.Computer.FileSystem.OpenTextFileWriter(MyFileName, True)



The file that I create seems to have hidden characters. I can copy and paste the text from the file into a different text file and I'm able to use it, but the file left as is does not process.
