I want to write an Excelexport (Excel5) with data from an Mysql database. There are german umlaute in the data.

Every field of the excelsheet with an umlaut ends after the umlaut an the rest of the line is dropped.

I tried to change the table to UTF8, changed the output to ISO-8859-1 nothing helps.

Is it not possibble to export this to an excelfile?

A HTML page with the data has no errors.

Example: Böblingen, Sindelfingen results in a field only with an B


Thanks for any help Toby

use utf8_encode to write Umlaute (äöü) into the excelsheet
