Character set is a file specifier for the LOAD statement that defines the character set used in the file.
The ansi, oem and mac specifiers were used in QlikView and will still work. However, they will not be generated when creating the LOAD statement with Qlik Sense.
|utf8||UTF-8 character set|
|unicode||Unicode character set|
|Windows, codepage 1252|
DOS, OS/2, AS400 and others
With the codepage specifier, it is possible to use any Windows codepage as N .
Conversion from the oem character set is not implemented for MacOS. If nothing is specified, codepage 1252 is assumed under Windows.
