Encoding utf-8 SAS Unicode

Hello SAS Community,

I need some help please.

I have an Excel file containing some fields in non-Latin languages (Chinese, Japanese, Arabic, etc...). I would like to import from SAS the xls file. Therefore, I use SAS Unicode instead of SAS base, and I used in the filename code to import the file the option (Encoding="utf-8"), as utf-8 is an universal encoding that can handle characters from all possible languages.

The SAS table created contains only question marks at lon latin fields.

Someone could help me please?

Thanks in advance
