My text file has a line like this: �this is a test�. I copied this line from MicroSoft Word Document. I am trying to read this file using IputStreamReader and then import this string in Oracle Database.
When I read this file, it reads this line like this: �this is a test�. How can I read this line just the way it is?
The problem is that a Word document is not a text document. If you read it with InputStreamReader, the weird characters Word uses for things like quotes don't match up with the plain text equivilents. Your choices are to either change the data file to be plain text or to filter out the weird characters and replace them in your program.
