Hi, I hope all is well.

I successfully converted an excel sheet to an anki deck by saving it to .txt and then importing it.

I'm trying on another excel sheet and am receiving the "Selected file was not in UTF-8 format. Please see the importing section of the manual."

Why am I receiving this message? How can I successfuly convert the document to an anki deck?

Thank you

    There is a link in this part of the manual that should help:
