webform output different in ver. 26 than ver. 25

Aug 16, 2016
I am working with the following command:

webform /v /w"Fidelity", "QUOTE_TYPE", "R", "SID_VALUE_ID", "FBGRX", "submit", "Quote"

If I issue this command in Version 25, I get an HTML file of which the first few lines are:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
<meta HTTP-EQUIV="Pragma" content="no-cache">
<meta HTTP-EQUIV="Expires" content="-1">

That's fine. But if I issue the exact same command in Version 26, I get what looks like Chinese:


There must be a setting somewhere that I am not able to find that controls how the results of a webform command are interpreted. I would sincerely appreciate it if someone would please educate me on what that option is, where it resides, and what it should be set to.

Thank you.

Fantastic, Rex. Yes, the webform command appears to work fine now in the version for which the ver command returns "TCC 26.00.26 x64 Windows 10 [Version 10.0.18363.720]". Thank you, thank you, thank you for fixing whatever the bug was! It took me a while to master the webform command and learn the basics of tpipe -- I won't live long enough to "master" tpipe! :) -- so that I could process the retrieved data. I'm delighted that that effort is still paying off. I've now been using your products for over 20 years! Keep 'em comin'! And thanks again.
