Why do small things that cause a lot of grief like this always happen to me? I built out my whole workflow and ran it only to find out it failed when passing through the macro. So I redid basically everything only to realize the only reason it was failing was because I created my own Text Input file that I called Field1 when the macro was expecting a field called data. *facepalm

I created a dictionary of ~800 UTF-8 characters and performed a random character substitution for half of the letters in the string. With 10 differently encoded versions of the original text it can be cracked easily using the decoder.
