Support » Plugin: TablePress » Problem with special character from the exportfile

  • Resolved spotbox


    Ive imported a list from excel and it works really nice. but if i export it again to make some changes, all the special characters looks completely wired in excel.
    The characters like ö, ä, etc are changed to some code.
    If i open the csv file on apple numbers, everything looks nice.

    Any idea, how i can fix this to edit it in excel correctly?

    Thank you for your help.

    thanks for your post, and sorry for the trouble.

    I’m afraid that Excel has problems recognizing the character encoding properly. There’s nothing really that I can do about this in TablePress. Your best chance might be to first open your exported CSV file in a text editor and change the character encoding to something else (like ISO 8859-1) there, and then open the file in Excel.
    Alternatively, you should maintain your table offline in Excel (basically without the re-export step) and only update it online with re-saved files.
