It appears that GoAnywhere is replacing the good \u2122 unicode trademark character with the invalid \u001a character. This creates an XML document that cannot be validated. It may also be replacing other good unicode characters, copyright etc. with that bad character.

I also, as a sanity check, ran the same job only creating a CSV instead of XML file and I experienced the same issue.

Has anyone else experienced this and is there a solution to fix this problem?

Can you send us the Project Code and Job Log of what you're doing to get this? We would like to run test here to verify what his happening and make sure we can re-create the same issue.

You can email the project and debug joblog to [email protected]. Send it to my attention. Also send any test CSV or actual data you are testing with if possible.
