    All Records not being Processed by WebMerge
    I have a file with relatively few records (less than 200) and I am trying to have WebMerge process these. It goes through the whole process but then only generates about 92 records. And instead of creating a normal file for one of the records it creates a folder.

    I'm sure this has something to do with there being an error somewhere in the data file, but what should I look for when trying to spot it?

    Thanks.

    Hmmm, I just checked and the only ones in there are the ones within html fields, like </B>, etc. Any other ideas?

    May I ask what those gremlin characters were? Maybe I can add a way to detect and remove those automatically.

    I'm not really sure since I didn't go through the file manually... but BB Edit's Zap Gremlins did the trick... So basically the malformed characters that just appear as a red upside down question mark.
