Write CSV Activity Encoding

Hello everyone, we are having trouble using the Encoding option in the Write CSV activity. We’d like to encode the CSV using utf-8, but the activity does not seem to be allowing us to do so. Evaluating the CSV file after using the activity reveals that it is still encoded using ASCII-8BIT.

We’ve used the supported character encoding name listed here: https://activities.uipath.com/docs/supported-character-encoding


TL;DR: utf-8 encoding doesn’t work with Write CSV

Hi @CDrakeMSTS
Set encoding option as""

Try this

Hi @AshwinS2, I tried setting the encoding option to “”, but I am still seeing that the CSV file is encoded using ASCII-8BIT

In case anyone else stumbles across this, the utf-8 encoding seems to be working correctly. The problem was with the website we were using to evaluate the CSV file itself. Mods, you can close this post
