    Blank Text

      I just upgraded from Monnarch 6 to 9. I used to be able to open/view the text file created by AS400. But it seems Monnarch 9 has some trouble with txt files. I can't see anything except a blank page. Tried a million times with a million different text files. Most of them failed.

       

      I'm hoping some experts teach me how to fix this. Otherwise, I might have to go back to 6.0.

          Hi Jiang,

           

          You can resolve this by going to the Options, Input menu item, and changing the Report Translation Encoding from ANSI to one of the UTF options. Start with UTF-8, and try the others if necessary.

            Thank you for the prompt reply. But I tried all 5 options under encoding, nothing works. Still blank page. The only difference is when I choose UNF-16BE, I see a lot of ?????.

             

            What else I can do?

              Instead of change the encoding from ASCI to others, I put a check mark on "ignore unused print control" then I can see the data!!! However, each row has "a+360H" on left. It makes the whole page looks crazy but at least I can see my data! 

              Do you have any idea how to get rid of "a+360H"?

                Haha! I found out how to fix this! Finally!

                Just hide the first 8 characters to get rid of the row headers.

                Thank you so much!
