I'm reading a Excel File containing French chars. Where should I apply the encoding whil reading the file. The data gets transformed as "T??l??difusion de France - TPG TDF Co-Invest LLC".

I havn't had any problems with encoding. Can you send me the xlsx file ( or create an issue and describe the problem.

Hi Jan,


Attached C#Code file and the data file I load to '' . Also I noticed when I ran this c# code on a diff machine, it read the French char rightly and produced in the output as desired.  So I guess it’s a Culture setting  which I’m not able to figure out. Appreciate if you could shed somelight on this.
