I want to export an attribute table to Excel. I see XyTools is used for that (is there another plugin?). Since I installed QGIS from OSGeo4W, I have the required library. However, when I tell XyTools to export the table, I get the following Python error message: UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xfc' in position 0: ordinal not in range(128) because my table contains nonASCII characters, which is not that unusual, especially for foreign languages. My question is: Is there a fix or workaround this issue or another plugin to export an attribute table to Excel?
You can use Save As from the layer popup menu to save attribute table to a CSV file which can be opened by Excel.
If your layer is a shapefile, you can also open the *.dbf file with Excel and save it as *.xls format.
