Your mail doesn't specify any encoding, but it seems to be 
iso-8859-1.  You're using ndashes here, though, instead of hyphens.
This is what the command should look like:

  grep -r -l Sata1 *.err

The above command only works when the current dir contains one or 
more files that end in "err".

This command always works, as long as the current dir isn't empty.
