Subj:   How to import utf8 data from teradata to excel 2002(XP)
From:   Vivek Pandey

Hi All,

I am facing problem while importing data from a unicode character column from a Teradata table to MS-Excel (XP).

Teradata works in utf8 charset.

When I import the data to a datafile (unicode text file) using queryman I can see the Russian & Japanese characters using Arial MS Unicode font in notepad.

Same column when imported in excel using OLEDB shows junk characters.

In excel I am using Data->Import External Data to select the rows from Teradata unicode table.

I believe this problem is occurring because Excel works in utf16 charset whereas Teradata in utf8 charset.

Is there anyway to export utf8 data to excel?

I am looking for experiences from people who may have earlier faced a similar scenario.

Thanks, Vivek.
