I have an Excel that was written in Hebrew that I need to convert into Shapefile file. I am working with Windoes 7 and with QGIS 2.18.17. When I was converting the Excel into CSV I used "CSV (Comma delimited" format. I also took care to be sure that the numbers and the words in the Excel columns are in the correct encoding.
I head tried other kinds of encoding for the Excel conversion and for the Delimited text file as well Including, but it did not help.
