You're get this error when the text in the file contains characters that cannot be mapped to the SAS session encoding. Your SAS session might be running in wlatin or latin1 -- or some other encoding that cannot handle the mix of characters.
The best approach is to run SAS with ENCODING of UTF8. To do that, the SAS command would need to change to reference the ../nls/u8/sasv9.cfg file as the configuration. In a centralized SAS environment, you'll have to coordinate that with a SAS administrator and potentially any colleagues who use the same SAS environment. But if national characters are a common requirement, that's the proper thing to do.
