    Storing txt file to "UTF-8 without BOM"

    Thorsten Schröder

      Hello community,

       

      I store one field from a resident table loaded from a qvd to a txt file (I've also tried csv).

      This txt file is saved with the UTF-8 BOM encoding.

      The problem I have with this is that the file contains paths to images that I automatically convert with IrfanView (through the command line). But IfranView throws an error: "Can't read file header" because of the first BOM bytes.

       

      Do you know of a way to automatically remove the BOM or can I change the store option? I've tried a bom remover tool but it had no "silent option" which is not an option.

       

      Thank you,

      Thorsten
