Creating master file for DM input for a Unicode data source
I have a comma delimited text file from SQL Server output that has Unicode (double byte) encoding. I've tried creating a master file using the CODEPAGE 65001 Unicode option, but the resulting master file is unable to read the source data. Is there a way to get DM to create a useable master file for this type of source? (Note that file is readily viewable with Wordpad, or any programming text editor. Its only when viewed in hex mode can you see the double byte structure. The data is simple english text and numbers, not characters that would require the use of Unicode for proper display)

Thanks!
