the problem i am experiencing with some of my csv files is that Qlikview stops loading data from the file when it encounters a special character - a little right arrow. I have no idea how the arrow ended up in the raw data file. the excel function 'CODE' says that the ascii code for this character is 26. So i tried to replace these with the following line of script:
Replace(SURNAME, Chr(26), ' ') as SURNAME
but this does not work.
i could manually delete these columns that contain this guy but i'm not sure if i can catch them all.
