Incorrect encoding used, was: Broker.sectors and broker.industries file creating

Hi @Tomasz , I recreated broker.sectors and broker.industries file so that new workspace file is created with my customized sector-industry mapping.

Instead, upon creating a fresh db, sectors and industries have gone missing in the categories window. For your reference I am also attaching the responsible broker.sectors and broker.industries files.
Categories%20Industries Categories%20Sector

the files can be downloaded from this link

What am I doing wrong?

I don't know wich method you have used to recreate this files, but it seems that they are Unicode encoded. Try to save them using ANSI encoding (you can use Notepad, for example).

@LeoCV is spot on. You have used Unicode (16 bits per character). While broker.* files are plain ASCII (8 bit per character).
