Just a question how to import an arrow symbol from a CSV file?


I try with encoding = utf-8 but still not working if you have any idea.


Thanks a lot

I find the answer, so first transform your csv file as text file and save it with the encoding UTF-8.


Finally just import your text file and it will worked properly.

Erm, not following.  What do you mean with CSV file - which is just a text file?  Is this something Excel related?  What does the file look like if you right click on the csv and open in Notepad, are the arrows there?  

Just cautious as opening and saving a file could change other things based on your options.

A csv file is a text file, so how did your "transform" it? Did you use some program? What program?
