One of my clients has some data in Japanese language in Oracle and he can view it. When he exports the data from Oracle to an Excel file, he is unable to view the Japanese script in the Excel file. All are junk characters there after exporting. He did send me the Excel file and I am also not able to see the Japanese script. Everything is junk there. Is something wrong? Can we also export Oracle Japanese data/file in Word format? Is there anybody to help why there are all junk characters in the Excel file after exporting? Thank you for your support.

Are Oracle and Excel (or Word) set to the same font (before exporting)?

It's hard to help without seeing the complete setup but:

Export the Oracle as UTF-8 or other language-specific text. ASCII might force garbage characters.

Make sure that all the systems have the a Japanese font or a Unicode Font installed.

Make sure the computer you are trying to view the Excel file on has the Asian language extensions installed and enabled.

If the hints above don't work, try Open Office ( It is more stable with multi-language documents.
