    case "ISO-8859-1":
        File.WriteAllBytes(fileName, ASCIIEncoding.Convert(
                                            convertToCSV(queryExecutionResult, fileName)));
    case "Windows-1252":
        File.WriteAllBytes(fileName, ASCIIEncoding.Convert(
                                             convertToCSV(queryExecutionResult, fileName)));

  • Does it work using this approach?

       File.WriteAllText( fileName,

                       convertToCSV( queryExecutionResult, fileName),

                       Encoding.GetEncoding( 1252));

  • I think notepad will only detect UTF16LE/UTF16BE/UTF8 with Byte-Order-Mark(BOM). For other code pages text file lacks method to tell what code pages the file is currently in, and will be treated as ASCII and subject to your "Language for non-Unicode programs" settings.

    As long as you try to open the file with IE, selecting the code page you are expecting, and the file does display correctly, you ought to be okay.
