hey all,

I get an flat ascii text file with invoices from a vendor which I upload to
the 400. and they've suddenly been having problems with spacing and such.

While i was looking through the file, I was cutting and pasting several
lines into another text file to illustrate the problems to them, and I came
across a character that stopped the paste - for instance, I copied 5 lines,
but could only paste 2 1/2 lines, and it stopped at this particular
character.  I'm sure that this will give fits to the CPYFRMSTMF or
CPYFRMIMPF commands too, though I haven't tried.

My question is, how can I find out what ascii char this is, and why it
can't be copy/pasted?  If someone wants to actually see the file, I can
send it to them offline.
