Checkout Aborted Err Due to Unicode File

Checkout Aborted Err Due to Unicode File

Checkout Aborted Err Due to Unicode File

I'm getting the following checkout error message from CVS when attempting to check out an entire branch:

cvs [checkout aborted]: unrecognized operation '\xffffffef' in E:/cvsrepo/DataV/DTSand StoredProcedures/DV Daily Load.sql,v

The problem seems related to the fact that CVS wants to treat this file as a Unicode file even though it is just a text file. The kicker is that, since the checkout fails, I am unable to get CVS to recognize this as a text file.

Has anyone seen this before. Any help would be hugely appreciated.

Cheers, Ken
