Hi Experts,

Could you help me how to find below special charcters "" in JAVA and Shell Script please.

This appers just of the first name of a person. Since we are not identifying this...this slips through our process and fails at the end of complete process. if we could identify this as part of the first parsing step. it would save lot of reprocessing time and defects etc.

This is what I see in a XML file
Firstname  Lastname

Same above character in a CSV file after the complete process failed
Firstname � Lastname
