Re: O$ 10.1: Single quote (inverted coma) converts to ’ when importing a comma delimited file into a list

hi Asif.

It likely isn’t a single quote.    

It is more likely to be a single curly quote (or some other such UTF8 character), which means you many need to either pre-process the file and remove/replace those.

or do it as part of your import process.
