XML Illegal Box Type New Record/Line Character

I'm reading in an XML file into SQL.  Next it goes to a flat csv file.  
There's an illegal character that is causing it not to write the record correctly to the csv file.  The character starts a new record.  The character does go into the SQL record.

Can you help me determine what the character is?  

It looks like the attached picture.  And it causes a new record to start.  The picture is from the original XML file.

Open the XML with a hex editor (for ex. http://mh-nexus.de/en/hxd/) and see the character code.

Sorry to be stupid about this.  Downloaded the program - the attached file shows where the error is.

OK, then search for 0x0A7F and delete it.
0x usually means hex value, not sure it's the same in ASP.

With this tool I was able to identify the exact character then replace it.  
0A = Line Feed / Carraige Return
7F = Undefined

Thanks Dan
