Description:
When trying to import a CSV file using the wizard i get the following error:
Unhandled exception: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xef in position 0: ordinal not in range (128).

I cannot load any CSV files to my database at the moment.

My friend tried in Windows and it worked just fine.

I have tried to install older version of Workbench but the app couldn't even start in MacOS Big Sur (incompatible).

I have seen this problem posted online but so far no useful solution.

How to repeat:
I tried multiple different CSV files without success.
My friend tried in Windows and it worked just fine.
I have tried to install older version of Workbench but the app couldn't even start in MacOS Big Sur (incompatible).

Suggested fix:
Nothing so far.
