Exporting none standard strings to EXCEL

Discussion created by flederfauz on Jun 2, 2011
So i wrote a code to export some of my attributetable entries to excel. Works smooth without any problems. But, in my attribute table are some strings that are not in a standard font. They are Vietnamese. So they have plenty of accents and other special stuff on the normal roman letters. But it is in ArialUnicode. If i export it now it is totally messed up when i open excel.It doesnt help to change the font in excel later on.
Any idea?
