Hidden Characters In Text File

With being able to format my check amount to create my export, I thought all was well.  I have been creating text files, via script exports, for a few years now.  I use the files to upload data to the accounting software.

 

This latest file is to upload to our bank, creating a positive pay file.  I create the text file.  I LOOKED the same as what my Excel version has.  However, it bombed at the bank.  Using a program to view the file, it seems there is an added HIDDEN character at the start of the first line of the file.

 

Any suggestions for clearing this?  I exported as ASCII DOS, as well as ASCII Window.  I have selected CSV and Tab-Delimited, even though I am only exporting one field per record.
