I'm experiencing weird problems with the User Directory Connector that uses Excel via a ODBC connection.
The problem is that all the users that are imported with special characters get very weird symbols.
The weird symbol is a small letter e with an acute. so the letter é. The problem is experienced with all of the special symbols. So the ö and the ë for example.
The user import is done via a Excel via ODBC connection that imports 2 CSV files: User Table and a Attributes Table.In the CSV file the names are correct
In the SCHEMA file for ODBC the CharacterSet is ANSI.
When I change the Characteset to OEM the symbol will change in Qlik Sense Users but is still wrong.
Anybody has a solution for this?
Maybe it helped if you used UTF-8 as charset. Further you should take a look on your collation-variable - maybe it are the right chars but displayed with the wrong collation.
