CSV file created in UTF8-BOM - Get rid of BOM??

I am saving a CSV file with Encoding.UTF8 and the resulting file has UTF8-BOM
This is a problem for the service where this file needs to be uploaded to

Dim completeFileName_Sig As String = realPath & “\admin\files\ACH\ChaseRequestsNew\Combined_sig.csv”
Dim csvOptions As New CsvSaveOptions(CsvType.CommaDelimited)
csvOptions.Encoding = Encoding.UTF8

    ef_Sig.Save(completeFileName_Sig, csvOptions)

Does anyone have a solution for me?


Hi Yoni,

Try this:

csvOptions.Encoding = new UTF8Encoding(False)

Does this solve your issue?
