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
Any idea, to how to work with this?
Thanks by advance
@jrmi do you have an idea?
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 https://jsonformatter.org/xml-to-json 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.
