Special characters

Hi,

 

I have a Delimited file with an UTF-8 encodage, but I have few characters as "é", "à"... wich are a black diamond with the character ? inside.

And a can't choose this case as condition in a tFilterRow.

 

Do you have an idea to resolve this issue ? Can you help me, please?

 

Best regards

Re: Special characters

No, you can just forget the preview (it's just a preview!) and set the Encoding as ISO-8859-15 in tFileInputDelimited (Advanced settings).

Should work.

Re: Special characters

Are you needing to get rid of the characters, or select based on them? I think Talend has a function to strip non-standard characters from text strings. To select on them, try using \uxxx and the character's Unicode value.

Please provide some sample source data and expected output.

Re: Special characters

I don't have time to do that, but if you create a tMap component and look at the functions available under String Handling, you'll see what I'm referring to.

Re: Special characters

Hi,
Are you sure the source file is UTF-8 encoded?
When do see the "black diamond with the character ? inside"?

Can you share an extract of the input file?

Re: Special characters

Hello,

 

This is my job :

tFileList_1 :

directory : "D:/SPC/FichienSensibilite"

files : "*.dat"

tFileInputDelimited_1 :

flow's name :

((Strint)globalMap.get("tFileList_1_CURRENT_FILEPATH"))

tFilterRow_1 :

 

condition

Freq    Vide    Vaut   "Fréquence=1000Hz"

Run IF :

condition :

((Integer)globalMap.get("tFilterRow_1_NB_LINE_OK")) > 0

tFileCopy_1 :

 

file's name :

((String)globalMap.get("tFile_1_CURRENT_FILEPATH"))

directory : "D:/SPC/test"

 

 

For my tFileInputDelimited_1 component, I use a metadata delimited file wich is form :

Colonne0

Date=20151202

Fréquence=1000Hz

Temps=50µs

 

Information

 

Colonne0 is a String type.

I want to search "Fréquence=1000Hz" and "Temps=50µs" in the tFilterRow_1 component, but "é" and "µ" are change by black diamonds with the character ? inside in my metadata preview.

My encode is UTF-8.

 

Best regards

Re: Special characters

Once again, are you sure of the file encoding?

Can you open the file using Notepad++ then, menu Encode and you should have something like that:

Capture.PNG

I just made the test with a CSV file with this encoding, the preview is OK.

If I change the file encoding to ANSI (using Notepad++) and save the file, preview is not OK as you can see here:

Capture.PNG

Hope this helps.

Re: Special characters

Hi TRF,

 

It's good for my metatdata, it was encode in ANSI so I changed its. Now I'm a new issue, it's that all input files are encode in ANSI, so what exit a solution to change all files in UTF-8 encode with an automatic process?
