احتÙاÙ

I want my arabic text to be exported instead. I think there is an issue with encoding. PLease help.

How to&Answers:

I found an answer to this. It is very simple though.

I normally use quick export and save the table in CSV format.

Now instead of exporting it in CSV, if I exported it in excel format, the arabic text appears :). I don’t know why that happened but it worked.

Please post if you know any better answer. Thank you 🙂

Answer:

I had the same problem before but I used to save as OpenDocument Spreadsheet and then open it by Excel. You may face some issues like slow save in excel but it is work, worth to try.
