What steps will reproduce the problem?
  $fileName = 'tmp/test.csv';
  $fileType = PHPExcel_IOFactory::identify($

  $excelReader = PHPExcel_IOFactory::createReader($fileType);
  $excelReader->setDelimiter('   '); // please put a TAB here
  $excelFile = $excelReader->load($fileName);           
catch (Exception $e) {
  die("Error loading file: ".$e->getMessage()."<br />\n");
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
I am expecting this code to pick up chinese String in B1 (see attached file test.csv)

Please provide any additional information below.
File test.csv has been created by using notepad saving file using encoding UTF8 and has a chinese string as well
