Unix or Linux Question Concatenate text of two files in UNIX.

I have a file MyTest.csv saved in Unicode format in Incoming directory, and I have another file called MyTest.csv saved in ANSII format in InProcess Directory.

I need to concatenate the text of both these files and put in another file MyTest.csv which is placed in the root directory.

How do I do the same?

When I use a normal CAT command in UNIX I am getting the attached error.



If I try to open the file saved in ANSII format I am able to open, but I am unable to open the file which is saved in Unicode format?

Please suggest a way to concatenate the files saved in different formats (viz Unicode and ANSII) in UNIX box.

Do you have iconv installed on your system? If so, try converting both of the files to UTF-8 before concatenation.
