Pound Sign Does not Export Correctly from a JavaScript Windows Store Application (when loaded into Excel) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello there

    I have a JavaScript Windows Store application which exports to a csv file selected by the user.

    When the file is loaded into Excel, all pounds signs are displayed as Â.

    The csv file is displayed correctly in Notepad.  If I open the csv file in Notepad and save it again (with no changes), the file then displays correctly in Excel.

    How can I export my file so that the pound signs are correctly displayed?
