I had the same issue when using a dash or a quote in my CSV file... check your CSV file and make sure it doesn't contain unsupported characters... not sure what the list of them are but thats what caused the error for me... took a lil headache and some trial and error till I figured it out.

Excellent guys... The problem will be solved if you remove all accent characters. The application parses the file before it even runs, so just take the time to open the file in notepad or something and simply go line by line, or search for accented a, or e characters (the most common).

I am getting the following Error message:

Error: Component returned failure code: 0x80500001 [nsIConverterInputStream.init], line: 3 (Error code: -1001)

My line 3 = SET !DATASOURCE C:\Users\FES-18\Documents\iMacros\Datasources\Macro.csv

What is this error? How can I fix it?

I have been facing this issue for quite long time on my Mac, while the same code was running quite fine on Windows. I've researched hundreds of forums, tried to change the encoding to UTF-8, still the same issue.

However, finally, God blessed me! I have downloaded Sublime Text and saved my CSV file with UTF-8 with BOM and it worked! :D

I don't really now what 'with BOM' means but it is the same meaning as manna for me!!

I don't write/comment on blogs, but this issue took a lot of time of mine and I thought, this might help someone to save their time and nerves

Hope this helps.

With greetings from Ukraine. Viva Ukraine and have a good one!
