StreamWriter's problem

I try to use the StreamWriter to write from file reader
(my file reader is not a text file) and I got this error
message

streamWriter.Wr ite(fileReader. ReadToEnd)

"Found a high surrogate char without a following low
surrogate at index: 325. The input may not be in this
encoding, or may not contain valid Unicode (UTF-16)
characters."
I don't know what does it mean. Can anybody help?

Hi,

Ensure the reader has been created with the character encoding corresponding
to that of the actual source file content. If, say, your file is in ASCII or
in Windows-1252, reading it as a Unicode file will obviously fail.

I am having a very strange problem with StreamWriter and writing to files. I have a procedure that is called several times to write out seperate files, each of them uniquely named by date all they way to the one hundred thousandth of a second. After the data is encrypted and written, the StreamWriter is closed and the function is returned. This all works fine and dandy, except when it is called more than once in succession. Originally,...

Hi, I have been having a problem writing the contents of a dataset to a .csv file. When I write to a .csv file and open it with either Excel or Wordpad the "french" characters are wrong. When I open the file with notepad the characters are displayed correctly. e.g. in notepad: École, in Wordpad/Excel: Ã?cole. Having the user import a text file and format it themselves is not an option. The output must be .csv. The function I was...

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
