Encoding problem

Hi all,

I was writing an interface that accepts the banks payments from enterprise one and them puts them into a flat file and sends them to the bank.What iam facing a small niggle is here is the scenario, when there are charecters other than english say German, or French etc … then my scheme is unable to convert the text into values(ie while i debug its throwing an error at convertToValues) step.So i tried using an encoding technique (ISO 1069… i dont remember the name of the technique exactly) is there any other way so as to deal with such scenarios.

Thank you

Sorry the error message come up as

malformed input exception …
