Hi,

I have downloaded your .csv file and open it in Emeditor and it shows encoding as UTF-8 with Signature. I save as this file into encoding UTF-16LE without Signature and open it in Excel 2007 and found all Spanish characters were displayed correctly.

Attached Brazil2.csv for your reference.

Thanks,
Shail
