Macbook air mid 2011 running OSX 10.10.5 QGIS 2.8.2 - Wien Excel 15.13.1 (O365)
When I export a shapefile containing non-ascii characters to a csv file using QGIS (setting encoding to utf-8) and importing to excel I end up with weird characters. What encoding (export and import) should I use?
for example: Darién becomes DariÃ©n
A workaround is uploading the QGIS exported csv file with utf-8 encoding to google docs and download it as an xlsx file but there must be a more elegant solution
The way I export the shapefile is by using right mouse button on the layer and choose save as. In the dialog window I choose csv
