Try importing/exporting to a tab-delimited file and see
if you have the
same problem. If you do, then it is an Interchange
problem and we
will certainly take a look at it.

If you don't see the same problem, it is a
Spreadheet::WriteExcel
or Spreadsheet::ParseExcel problem, or in our
interfacing thereto.
But a quick perusal of the docs for those don't mention
any methods
which allow us to specify the character set.

----------------------------------
em this is actually why we switched to excel exporting
:)
the tab delimiting was creating weird characters,and
when excel did the same thing I posted the problem
here.Just to be safe I reinstalled interchanged tried
the import/export thing in excel and tab delimited
again with no luck.The characters always get messed up.
