My original formatting was in latin-9. The target tables were always missing the german umlaut (ä,ö,ü, etc).
An additional issue in my case was the column length. Because of the additional length an umlaut needs, the program crashed on each row where the defined length did not suffice for the new formatted value.
Thanks for for sharing your experience. Good tip about increasing the length to accommodate for the umlaut. Hopefully by sharing we help others in the community resolve their encoding issue in a more timely manner.
