Importing data with accents and other diacritics

Importing data with accents and other diacritics

I am trying to import data from an excel document, saved as csv into EMu. The data includes a number of French and German words with accents etc. When I do the import into EMu those lines with accented data comes back as an error.

Does anyone have tips on how to import this type of data?

Cheers
Chris

Re: Importing data with accents and other diacritics

Hi Chris

Importing the right data will probably depend on your EMu server's language setup. Your local EMu support office would probably advise on that. 

What might be worth trying here is altering the encoding of your *.csv file to be "Western Europe ISO-8859-1". If this does not do any good, try encoding the data as UTF-8.

I personally find it very easy to change character set encoding using Apache's OpenOffice.

Hope this helps!
