I am trying to export my Reunion 9 file to Genes Reunited. The site requires a GEDCOM 5.5 which is no problem but also requires it to have an ANSI character set. This is not available from the GEDCOM export settings.
Any suggestions on how I can set this up?

It should work if you use the choice "Windows" for character set.

Thanks Roger,
I have tried all 6 available character sets and non of them will upload. I just tried the Windows set again with the same result.

It might be about the line endings then...

Before you upload the file, open it in TextWrangler (free from http://barebones.com/products/textwrangler/)

and down at the bottom of the window you'll see several pop up menus - the right most one saying

Mac (CR)

Change that to

Windows (CRLF)

and save the file, and then see if Genes Reunited will allow the upload. (Use the Windows Character Set still).
