comment How to read Greek fonts (ISO-8859-7) in shapefile attributes within QGIS 1.8.0?
I'd like to tahnk everyone for their help. I tried most of the solutions provided, expect for the .cpg one which I'll try in my laptop, some of them worked. For INSPIRE datasets, like the ones used from the geodata.gov.gr portal, it works when you select either UTF8 or ISO-8859-7 when opening the shapefile in QGIS. The problem lies with shapefiles produced without specifying the relevant encoding. Nevertheless it seems I can use most of my dataset, maybe it'll be easier in the next QGIS version.

Thanx, I tried it but doesn't work. There's also a 'greek' option but doesn't seem to work either. It should be possible but...
