Reading a UTF-8 File with BOM (Byte Order Mark) with the File Adapter


i try to read a UTF-8 with BOM with the file adapter.

The first line in the file looks like that:

20080911B189006 000000000000018203 ST 5.000 eqpjlqk 0001weber 795184000010

in hex:


Where EFBBBF are the 3 Charakters from the BOM.

My Payload after reading looks like that:


The first character in the payload is a '?' and the whole line is shifted by 1 character.

Can anyone help my to get this problem solved?
