I am using the winscp tool to bring over .txt files from a server outside the destination network.

The source files have comma delimited, quote enclosed records like below.

"106","000775","ADKINS","ETHAN","TRESTON","","KG","2403","ELIZABETH","BROWNWOOD","TX","76801","2001507"

This record looks correct. However, it actually has a little box at the end of each record which is causing my import tool to fail.

How do I transfer the files without this little box showing up? When I manually transfer the files without using the Winscp tool, there is no box at the end of each record.

I use notepad to view the files by the way.

I am baffled. Thanks for your help.

So how do you transfer the file when the problem occurs.

Also I suggest you to read

Thank you.

I believe the problem is that we are transferring in 'Automatic'.

I am going to change it to "binary".

Thanks for the assist.
