[resolved] [Plugin: Contact Form 7 to Database Extension] Exporting Excel Data in Japanese Language (7 posts)

    Hello. I'm trying to export our clients' data that has been collected through Contact Form 7 into Excel. However, when I go to "database" and tried to export as "Excel CVS (UTF-BOM)", "Excel TSV (UTF16LE-BOM)" or "Excel CVS (UTF-8), all the excel sheets exported have incorrect, unreadable characters due to character encoding issue.

    Is there any way to fix this?
    Any help is much appreciated!

    Japanese Excel tries to read it in Shift-JIS.
    So, you need to change your CSV file to Shift-JIS encoding or other types that can be read in Japanese Excel.

    This reply must be way too late.. though, I write for forum archives.
    I hope you have solved the case.

    I could actualize by customizing this plugin.

    * How to customize this plugin:
    - http://kitaney.jp/~kitani/tools/wordpress/sources/contact-form-7-to-database-extension-japanese-contomized.txt

    * Code
    http://kitaney.jp/~kitani/tools/wordpress/index.html#3 (Sorry in Japanese)
    1. Install contact-form-7-to-database-extension-with-japanese-encoding
    2. Deactivate contact-form-7-to-database-extension
    3. Activate contact-form-7-to-database-extension-with-japanese-encoding

    When the plugin is updated, the customized plugin needs to be re-customized.
    Therefor, I hope that it will be embed to this plugin .. (^^;

    Nice work. I incorporated your changes with slight modification in my code but I have not released it. If I send you a copy of this version, would you mind testing it for me to ensure it works properly?
