Files are imported based on the default file encoding for  Designer Cloud Powered by Trifacta®.

As needed, you can override the default file encoding during the importing of individual datasets.

NOTE: All output files are written in UTF-8 encoding.

Tip: If you have already imported the dataset and need to change this setting, you can re-import the source and change the settings. In any flows that use the previously imported version of this dataset, you can change the input for any recipe that uses the old version to use this newly imported version in Flow View.


  1. After you have selected or specified the file to import in the Import Data page, click Edit Settings for the dataset card in the right panel.
  2. From the drop-down, select the preferred encoding to apply to this specific file. 
  3. Continue the import process.
