Hoping you can help me out with this one...
For my work, I've been assisting a DBA for the last few weeks and we've now been given the task of uploading a very large spreadsheet which has several fields containing unicode characters (™, ®, °, so on and so forth) into a MariaDB table.
We initially tried just exporting it into a .csv file and putting it in the table but it seems to have been unable to use the special characters and it's actually cut off the rest of the data that was in the same cell(s) which obviously isn't ideal. When I opened the .csv file in a text editor (Sublime Text 3), it had all the special characters displayed as question marks in diamonds so we took that to mean that there was some kind of conflict between the formats.
If someone could advise me on how to export to a UTF-8 or UNICODE .csv file so we can preserve the characters, that'd be great.
Thanks in advance.
