Hi All,


Simon Davis - It is so exciting to see the release of Phoenix® 8.1. I=
 will
check out its features.


Ruben Faelens - I have been using PsN for years but never thought that PsN
would help for the BOM issue. That workaround will mostly benefit our Psn
users.


Robert Bauer - This is absolutely the best solution, providing the native
support for UFT-8 BOM format. Filtering out the BOM will surely work. You
may test the new functionality on the csv file generated by the R
function readr::write_excel_csv
(dateframe, 'dataframe.csv')


Thank you all for your support,



Mark
