Export Excel to Utf8 css

My customer needs to convert his Excel files regulary into css (for his webshop).

He uses export as css. The problem is that the Hungarian characters are lost.

I found some methods on the net to edit the css with notepad++ and so on, but my customer even curses for having to do a "save as" -> in his opinion this is the most complicated thing to do.

So have you got an easy process to convert the Excel file to an UTF8 css? (with comma separated)

Thank you

in access i have used open file output to export data sets..

you could do that in excel in a macro too...rather than using excel export, it might save the characters.

dim strList as String
  'loop through calculations here
  '   assign the values, e.g., "A", "B", etc. to strList
  '  example:  strList = strList & strNewValue
  Open "c:\List.txt" For Output As #1
  Write #1, strList
  Close #1


you could loop through the cells in range and output the contents to file, line by line.

It gave me only some clues, I had to figure out most of it myself
