[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Trying to import data but keep getting error message

Hi Suzanna,

I’ve seen this error when I’ve tried to import something with improperly encoded diacritics (i.e. not done in UTF-8). Perhaps run the data through a UTF-8 validator to check?

Best wishes,

Hello all,
Has anyone else encountered this error with importing data for digital objects :

"Error: #<ArgumentError: invalid byte sequence in UTF-8>"
I keep getting this error message in the log.
If anyone has any insight into fixing this, please let me know.
Thank you,
