Thanks !

After exporting data in ISO file in manageable number and reimporting, we
were able to isolate the records with errors. We are still looking at the
data to fix the errors, but I am happy to say that we were able to import
4405 records out of 4700 into Greenstone.

The strange characters on some of the records were causing the errors.
