Excel Importing Errors - New Characters


I recently upgraded our designer and ran an import on an Excel file.  Now when I import it, it contains additional characters in the cells that weren't there before (thereby rendering our currently workflow useless).  It looks like it is assigning additional text (_x0032_) when there is a number error in the cell or "_x0020_" when there is a space in the cell.  Not sure why this is all of a sudden happening.  Nothing has changed in the native Excel.


Hi @apoeppelmeier,


did you see this post?


I believe the x0020 is the space characther in a hexadecimal format, not sure why it gets loaded this way. Try if the link above solves it.
