Field Conversion Error

Hi,

 

I am facing field conversion issue while loading to a .csv file.

 

To give a background, I have a input field from (.xlsx) file which contains a relatively long string for example: 'Donation- Members of Healthcare Community'

I am changing this field type to V_Wstring (I have also tried for WString). However, While loading it into a .csv file I face conversion errors.

Could anyone please direct me on how to overcome this conversion error

 

Many thanks
