This is probably due to a column name containing an accent (like “é”). Try renaming the column.

I get a similar error right after loading the new "AI Consumer Quick Start" tutrial (from the dataiku academy) and loading "Model Report & Predictions" dashboard. 

I don't see any panda usages in the flow nor is there any accent usage in the column names.

Hi @Herve , could you please share a screenshot? I'm unable to reproduce the error. If you prefer, you can also report it and share any information or screenshots/screencasts that could be helpful in our feedback/bug tracker.

Thanks in advance!

To use a specific encoding (e.g. 'utf-8') use the encoding argument for pandas to csv:

df.to_csv(file_name, sep='\t', encoding='utf-8')
