Hello,

I need to convert a CSV file as XLS using VB. Below is the code I am using.
-------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------


Dim myXL
Dim strfileName As String

strfileName = "c:\ACS\" & (Dir("c:\ACS\*.csv", vbNormal))
Set myXL = CreateObject("excel.application")
myXL.Workbooks.Open strfileName
myXL.DisplayAlerts = False
myXL.ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs "c:\ACS\Dailyalert.xls", -4143
myXL.DisplayAlerts = True
myXL.ActiveWorkbook.Close False

Set myXL = Nothing


-------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------

The problem is that the CSV file also has non-English(Asian) characters which gets corrupted when in the XLS file.
Is there a way to convert a CSV file into XLS file so that the non-English characters also gets saved?
When I manually save the CSV file as XLS file I am able to view the non-English characters present in the file.
Thanks and Regards,
Shweta Bhandari
