Copy Paste from DataGrid View to MS Excel - issue with collation

Hi, I have written a small program that list data into datagrid view, now I want to copy paste the data from the grid view into the Excel, all works fine except that Greek characters are converted to different collation and are not readable.

The regional settings of the PC are Greek, and Greek is set for non Unicode applications too.
Data are from Oracle Database, Greek collation too.

Any idea why or how to solve the issue?

Thank you for your help.
