Yes, I tried to use the CHARSET = latin-1 setting, but it dosen't work. I put this in the props.conf under /system/local on the hunk Server.

props.conf
[source::/data/comdatalog*/...]
TIMEPREFIX="created":
SHOULD
LINEMERGE=false
NOBINARYCHECK=true
CHARSET=Latin-1

Hmm, that's strange, does any of the following configs actually get the charset set right? Basically trying to see if there's either another source:: stanza that matches and sets the CHARSET (due to wildcarding) or an automatic sourcetype that overrides your setting

[source::/data/com_data_log*/...]
TIME_PREFIX="created":
SHOULD_LINEMERGE=false
NO_BINARY_CHECK=true
CHARSET = Latin-1
# setting priority should ensure that the settings of this stanza are layered on *top* of other matches 
priority = 100

How about the following?

[source::/data/com_data_log*/...]
TIME_PREFIX="created":
SHOULD_LINEMERGE=false
NO_BINARY_CHECK=true
sourcetype = my-sourcetype
priority = 100

[my-sourcetype]
CHARSET=Latin-1
