Export issue unidecode

Post by JosepM » Sat Jun 03, 2017 10:28 pm


I need help so I have a big problem that maybe someone can help me.

I use Quartam Reports as reporting tool in one applications. When I preview the report, all the data are fine and print ok, but if you export to Excel XML, CSV all the accents are wrong and are showed wrong.

I have my data UTF8, so from the report I use (I can use the livecode functions)
I'm on Livecode 4.6.4, I know is a old version, but I can't upgrade now.

unidecode(uniencode(XXXXX_field_name,"UTF8")) ---> this show ok but export is wrong
unidecode(uniencode(XXXXX_field_name,"UTF8"),"UTF8") ---> this show wrong but export is OK

I know that is Quartam Reports but the functions are Livecode.

How can I show the data correct and when I the export also correct?

Try with urlencode and urldecode functions.
