    • Article Type: Q&A
    • Product: Alma

    Question

    When exporting Analytics reports in text formats, the encoding is sometimes UCS-2. Can this be changed to UTF-8.

    Answer

    The export encoding is an Oracle standard which cannot be changed.

    Additional Information

    Helpful hints:
    * CSV exports are always in UTF-8 encoding; only tab delimited exports are in UCS-2.
    * The text editor Notepad++ has a menu option to convert UCS-2 files to UTF-8.
