There's more than one option for exporting data from a FileMaker Database. Which method are you using?
And just about anything that you see as a menu option can also be scripted with the button performing that script.
I have tried exporting as both Coma and Tab separated files. We need the information from the reports to go easily into the spreadsheet.
OK, on the scripting I will poke around. It would be great to have this as a button on the report page. It would reduce the client training time. :-)

Which means that you selected Export Records from the File menu. Correct?
Which option did you select from the drop down that I've circled in red in the dialog shown in this screen shot?
You are correct. Unicode (UTF-8) is what I selected. What I would like to select is UTF-16 but it is not in the list.
I don't have a web direct published database to test, but in FileMaker Pro on Windows 7, I have UTF-16 as an option that I can choose here.
If you cannot find that option, you may want to post to report an Issue and see what the FileMaker Techs say about that omission from this list.
