Finally something I can answer!
I have found that you need to use 'open file' because that let's you
specify the file's encoding.
Assume the path to your file is in tFile, these lines should work:
open file tFile for utf8 read
read from file tFile until end
put it into fld "indices"
close file tFile
If there is a more elegant way, I'm sure the pros will chime in!
