File generation by SSIS in UTF-8 without signature with french characters

File generation by SSIS in UTF-8 without signature with french characters

File generation by SSIS in UTF-8 without signature with french characters

(OP)
I have a SSIS Package generating flat files. I need the file to be UTF-8 without Signature. I have tried various things. Under the FlatFileConnectionMgr I have set the code page to 65001 (UTF-8), I have tried setting AlwaysUseDefaultCodePage to true and code page to 65001 in Component Properties and under External Columns under Input and Output Properties.

If I set the properties to W_STR, the file generated shows it is UTF-8 file but french characters are distorted and when I use 65000 (UTF-8), french characters come through fine but the file generates as ANSI.

The consumer of the file has requested to generate a UTF-8 file (without signature) and obviously french characters need to be shown correctly in the file.

Does any one has any ideas on this?

RE: File generation by SSIS in UTF-8 without signature with french characters

If you say "characters are distorted", do you mean corrupted to question marks or rather "ç" instead of ç?

If the latter, then the file _is_ properly encoded as UTF-8 and problem lies with how you check the generated file.
