which version of excel do you have?
try to "save as" the excel worksheet in the most recent version you have available. excel 2003 and 2007 should have utf-8 support so that your chinese characters should import correctly in fmp10.
or maybee, you didnt install the corresponding language support / font support in your win xp. must be somewhere in control panel / region or language control (oops, right place?)
greetings from germany
we are using excel 2007
with in excel 2007 you can save down to the older file types and i tried both ways.
Chinese characters work when i copy them in "by hand" with copy/paste both from the web and from the excel file. However i cannot import all the records with the import wizard in fmp.
we tried the import again on another machine that had the chinese language support installed and this resolved the issue.
Vielen Danke! Chris!
