Export to Excel replaces hyphens with question mark



When I export to Excel from a Salesforce report I notice that hyphens in certain long text fields are replaced with question marks?


How can I resolve this?


Many thanks for any assistance




Hi Ross,


This usually is seen as an encoding issue - can you try changing the format in which you are setting the "Export File Encoding" parameter.


Keep it as UTF-8 and see if that fixes the issue..
