Hi everyone,


I am trying to open dbf. file on excel. However, it shows characters and foreign language in the title row (first row). I checked the language setting, it is English. Any suggestion?excel.JPG

Hello @fadiahu ,

You can use the translator in Excel, isn't a formula so you need to translate one by one:


I hope this works for you.







I appreciate your help but i do not think this solution works. The problem with encoding in office 365.



I don't think that's encoding problem, Excel shows you foreign text in headers as it is DBF.
