      Description

      Bulkupload:

      Importing textfiles from a windows-pc raises problems, because a windows pc normaly produces ascii ...

      When you save a textfile with windows-notepad, the first sign is WRONG and bulkupload will stop, with the message username is not a valid field ...(looking in the code there is not username but username with a sign? in front.

      You have to copy the text direct from excel into notepad2 save as utf8 and this will work for all signs ...

      Is there no possibility for importing datas to select an import code?

      You may get an Testfile (Excel with some strange signs (German and Hungarien)

      The same happens with GIFT Import
