Import XML with french characters

Hi !! I’m trying to import an XML file with french characters, but in the preview, special characters mess out.

The actual encoding is UTF-8, I also tried ISO-8859-1 and Windows-1252 but got the same results :confused:

Any idea, to how to work with this?

Thanks by advance :smile:

I have tested a file with accent and indeed the import is broken in this situation. Sorry about that. I’ve filled an issue Encoding issue while importing XML files with accent (#1360) · Issues · Bram Wiepjes / baserow · GitLab.

In the meantime, if you want to import a file with accent I would recommend to use a JSON or CSV format if you can.

You can use a tool like to transform your XML in JSON if you have no other way to get a proper JSON format. When using this tool, make sure to save only the rows.row property content like the selected part in this example:


Hope it’ll help.
