Trial vs Actual output problem

Postby Houston » Thu Feb 17, 2011 2:57 am

I imagine this a face-palm type of fix but I am having trouble getting my output to work correctly. I have a list of .mhtml files that I'm processing the source code for and the trial output comes out fine. When I do an actual run of the .mhtml and output to a .txt, the result is garbled and a good number of my lines are gone or have partially converted to the value "=" or "= 20". I notice when I remove the html to text filter my values and lines return (as well as the html). Will I have to manually remove the html myself or does the problem lie somewhere else?

Most likely your file on disk does not have windows eol characters. At the top of your filter list, add a
Filters\Convert\End of line characters

No luck there. I'm thinking I'm going to have to do it manually.

Or that your file is not in ANSI encoding as you expect - possibly UTF-8 or another form of Unicode.

Please upload the file and filter to the forum so we can see the issue first-hand.

I can't attach the files because it's not allowed on the forums...

I saved your trial run area to a text file, and the compared it to Forward Resume Email - CareerBuilder_com.mht.

The files are completely different - the .mht has email headers, spaces and = are sometimes encoded as =20 and =3D etc.
