I'm using Notification tasks to create a log file for success and failure results that is read using, emailed using HTML and then added to a SQL table to feed our internal MI.

I'm using the following

|\r\n| )}

With Success being a similar notification task.

However, the replace character is supposed to be a TAB character (copied and pasted from notepad++ UTF-8 encoding) but it is only adding a space.

This used to work with no issue. OS I've tried it on is Windows 10, 11, Server 2012 and Server 2016 and the copied "Tab" is now interpreted as a space.

How can I use a tab character in the Regex?

The snippet looks like this

Using TaskLog As New FileIO.TextFieldParser(strSourceFilePath)
        TaskLog.Delimiters = New String() {vbTab}
        TaskLog.TrimWhiteSpace = True
        TaskLog.HasFieldsEnclosedInQuotes = False

and uses vbTab elsewhere in the code.

Not into here, but this might be missing? :

TaskLog.TextFieldType = FileIO.FieldType.Delimited

Uses Visualcron since 2006.
