Hi All,
I am facing a problem of text files that are been created by a batch process. Actually the batch process creates the file in ASCII format but these text files act as a input to some other system(SSIS Package), so sometimes the contents of the files are not understood by the downstream system. So is there any way or teal which I can make in my batch file so that it saves the text file in UTF-8 format rather than ASCII.
 
Thanks & Regards

You can use Encoding to guarantee your file is saved as UT8.
// depending on how long your file is, you may need to take a different approach 
// how the text is read and written to the file
string text = File.ReadAllText(path);
byte[] buffer = UTF8Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(text); 
                
using (FileStream fs = File.OpenWrite(utf8Path))
{
    fs.Write(buffer, 0, buffer.Length);
}
