"File Origin" for importing Text Files? RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I import a text file, in the first dialog box If I select  a particular "File Origin" (like "1252: Western European (Windows) or 1250: Eastern European (Windows)) what does this do? Does it define the locale (how dates, times and numbers are displayed) or is it defining the full set of characters, like ASCII Characters or something else?

    Sincerely, Mike Girvin
