Problems with special characters using filedownload


I'm using the UI file-download element to download internal data from a web dynpro application (unicode ERP system)

using the following method:

lr_conv_out = cl_abap_conv_out_ce=>create( encoding = 'UTF-8' ).



data = lv_content


buffer = lr_fh_node-content ).

node->bind_structure( lr_fh_node ).

(Nearly) everything works fine. The browser opens excel and displays content of string parameter lv_content.

But I have some problems with special charcters like german 'öäü' or other characters for example russian letters.

In the excel file there are shown like this:

almacén de cartón


1800000 âu201A¬)

Any ideas?

Thanks in adv.
