    Default Unable to read the Pound Sign from flat file

    Hi

    I have a flat file and need to dump it into a table something like
    Code:
    Item  ,            Values
    Shoes,            20£ 
    Cakes,            30₤
    When i try to read this file using pentaho the £ or ₤ symbols are replaced by some weird characters any ideas please.

    You must specify the correct encoding - the one that was used to create the file.
    When using Text File Input, it is on the Content tab.
    So long, and thanks for all the fish.
