Hi,
I am currently working in a Japanese project.I am facing some problems in displaying japanese characters in excel sheet in windows NT env (english Version).
I am using servlet and jsp to display the japanese characters in the excel sheet.In the servlet i am setting all the neceseary things for response such as
contentType("application:excel,charset=utf-8") etc...
But i am not getting the japanese characters correctly.Instead i am getting junk characters in the japanese fields.

Kindly suggest me some solutions to solve the above mentioned problem..
regards
Dinesh

Hi Dinesh,
Please do not post the same topic in multiple forums. I am moving this to the Servlets forum.

As an experiment, try writing the data as HTML content instead, and see if you can view the characters that way. The basic possibilities are: (a) you haven't read in the data correctly in the first place, (b) something is wrong with how you're sending it, and (c) the Excel application isn't set up to view Japanese chars correctly. By displaying the data in other formats, you can get an idea where the problem is.

Hi Jim,
As u told i tried with different type like html and text file.Then also i am getting the same junk format.Actually in the servlet i am diong all this things:
httpservletresponse.setContentType("application/vnd.ms-excel;charset=UTF-16");
//httpservletresponse.setContentType("text/html;charset=UTF-8");
httpservletresponse.setHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename="+fileName+".html");
httpservletresponse.setHeader("Content-Encoding", "UTF-8");
is it because of that UTF-8,i tried to set the encoding as UTF-16.But it giving some run time error stating that
Internal error: exception thrown from the servlet service function (uri=/gehfs/reports/ReportServlet): java.io.UnsupportedEncodingException: UTF-16, stack: java.io.UnsupportedEncodingException: UTF-16

Set content type to "Shift_JIS", that should do the job
 
Do not set lab on fire. Or this tiny ad:
