encoding of a file - include function

[ Edited ]

 

Hi, I have a problem with include function in EG, I have a polish e-mail there, but instead of polish characters I just see �

If I don't use the include function and I have the e-mail directly in the sas program - is ok, when I do it global is not.

 

My code:

filename genericq ('.' '/abc/cde/) encoding="utf-8";

%include genericq('generic.sas');

 

How can i fix it?

Re: encoding of a file - include function

The encoding option on the filename statement assigns the encoding to use when writing to a file.

Try using the encoding option on your %include which is meant to be used when reading a file in that has a different encoding.
