I'm trying to save a file in the Notepad to build my Select By Attributes so I can save them for later use.

Problem I don't know what to save which file type it can read ?

My question is which file type do I need to save as what ?

I did write it down in Windows 10 and copy it and save it in Citrix Enterprise server

 

This is what it gave me 

it gave me all the garble !!!

Can you type ascii text in Notepad?  Notepad is for ascii text.  It seems you are reading or writing in a different codepage.

PS google     Notepad++   and download it.  It is better than builtin Notepad

I cold not get it to work but I found out that when you save it to a file within the Select By Attribute, the extension is .exp.  I found one of my old expression I had so I fix it but it is still not work...

At first it didn't work but I had to load the old one with the .exp and the copy and the paste of that expression I wrote and save as a new one.  It is working fine now.
