Control Character Removal

You can use several stages to remove control characters - such as escape or end-of-transmission characters - from data. Remove control characters to avoid creating invalid records.

When Data Collector removes control characters, it removes ASCII character codes 0-31 and 127 with the following exceptions:
  • 9 - Tab
  • 10 - Line feed
  • 13 - Carriage return
