Problems exporting UTF-8 - CSV Writer



we try to export data containing strings to a file.

The data is UTF-8 encoded and is loaded via Database Reader Node.

We try to export it via CSV-Writer, but the encoding of the exported file is then changed.

(We tried XLS Writer as well)

What did we made wrong, that we could not export UTF-8 encoded data?





the CSV writer is using the eclipse/knime standard encoding. Unfortunately there is no option in the dialog to specify the desired encoding. You can specify the enclipse/knime standard encoding via the option:


Copy this option into your knime.ini file to set the standard encoding to UTF-8. The csv writer will then write UTF-8 encoded files.
