FDM error while masking a numeric value from a seedlist file

When trying to mask a numeric value from a seedlist but after masking few values its failing with below error.
"cannot update numeric column <colname> with value <colValue> - please check your masking function and / or options are consistent with a numeric value"
Issue happened due to the incorrect/unexpected encoding of the seedlist file where it was encoded as UTF-8-BOM.
To resolve this issue please open it in Notepad++ , change the encoding to just "UTF-8" and save the file. Now retry masking and it should not throw same error.
