Powershell export not bring é through correctly.


When I run an export from active directory via powershell, it doesn't bring in the é letters or anything, how can I force it to do that rather than the  Eléctrico that it's giving me. Essentially it should be Eléctricos

You wonderful, wonderful person!!!!

I googled that for AGES and couldn't find anything, I thought I needed some sort of language pack :S

Thanks OBdA
Sidenote - UTF8 encoding could also work for your needs.  Not really important unless there's restrictions imposed by other apps that may consume the text output.

Not really, I just need it to import a LOT of data straight into active directory. We're doing a dump of oracle to an excel sheet then importing specific details into AD using an employee number as a unique identifier for the oracle active directory sync
