Error :: invalid byte sequence for encoding "UTF8": 0x81"

Hi ,
We are loading the data into Greenplum by our talend job using some external files.
We are getting " Due to "invalid byte sequence for encoding "UTF8": 0x81"" this error ?
Can someone please tell me where we are going wrong ?
What we have to modify ? any setting ?

There are 2 possibilities:
1. your file contains at first byte a byte which clarifies which char set the file has and this byte is wrong
2. you read a file with a component set to UTF and received a byte which cannot be part of a UTF-8 encoding.
At first you have to ask the people how create your files and get certain about the charset.
