PHP/MySQL Export Data from Recordset; Foreign Characters

PHP exports MySQL data to .csv files without problem except in the cae of accented characters. MySQL and PHP are set to utf8 and the data displays correctly on the page.

Is there any way we can improve the downloads?

<?php

$dblink = new mysqli($servername,$user,$password,$dbname);

$res = $dblink->query("SET CHARACTER SET utf8");
$res = $dblink->query("SET NAMES utf8");
?>


after this you have made sure that mysql only talks utf8 to php. You can replace utf8 to any known character set compiled in MySQL if you like.

But I do not understand why you use php to convert MySQL tables to csv files. You can do it by a simple MySQL query in any character sert you like.
