Crash when changing codepage for bcp


I have the problem that Euro currency Symbol (€) contained in a varchar column in one of my tables gets converted to underscore (_) when using SQL Azure Migration Wizzard.
So I changed the codepage from 437 to 1252 and the application keep crashing as soon as the first table of my db is processed.

Hi Frank,

Sorry, but I totally forgot about the Issue Tracker and thus didn't see this. Did you ever get this resolved?

Hey George,

I just reported it, didn't try to fix this myself.

Regards, Frank

Can you create a very simple database with a couple of tables that reproduce the problem? You can do a backup and send me the bak file? You still have my email address?

No, I don't have your email address...
Please find the db backup attached to this post!
First, you need to setup the bcp codepage to 1252 in the xml-config file of sqlazuremw.
