Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create CSV data file for Mass Maintenance data using Notepad(Notepad.exe).
  2. Save file as Encoding UTF-8.
  3. Run "Mass Maintenance" ( e.g. Manage Mass Maintenance Business Partner )
  4. Upload UTF-8 Eicoding file.


BOM(Byte Order Mark) data is added to UTF-8 encoding data file by the specification of Notepad(Notepad.exe).

An error occurs because "Mass Maintenance" does not assume BOM data.


Use other editor to make UTF-8 encoding file without BOM data. ( e.g. Notepad++ , Terapad ... )
