Having trouble with save tranlate /type=tab

Postby mark.pitcock » Wed Mar 07, 2012 6:02 pm

I am using SPSS v17 and when I try to save an SPSS dataset using the save translate /type=tab or /type=csv, SPSS is writing three bytes of something to the file first before it writes the data. The first three bytes have a value of 239, 187 and 191. Is this some kind of unicode setting and if so how do get it to not write those characters out to the file?
