Are you seeing unexpected characters in your Excel document?

Are you seeing other language characters in your excel document?

If are you seeing another language displaying in your excel file (such as the Construction Project Plan or any other excel file):
A couple of settings to check: 

  • Did you install a (Chinese/other) language pack for your Excel or other Microsoft Office application?
  • Did you set up the computer and keyboard to work in more than one language?

Follow the steps below and check if it helps:
Open Excel, Click on File, Options, Languages, Ensure all the options is set to English  <default> and click ‘Ok’.

Also remove if any other language is added under ‘Choose Edition Languages’ and ‘Choose Display and Help Languages’.
