Table import and special letters

Recommended Posts

The import of the CSV file works nicely, but - in my case it french city names - the strings get truncated as soon as the first è or ü (well, that's more a german letter) or what ever appears. Is Houdini only capable of handling A-Z and a-z? No accent de gue or whatever these letters might be?

Actually just the regular Houdini Table importer. Wonder whether I can bend my mind around that.

You could also use Python (inside or outside of H) to clean up the unwanted letters for you. Each one of those characters has a corresponding integer representation. Poke around stack overflow and I'm sure you will find help with cleaning it up.

: ) I need these letters. After all I need the French city names to be spelled correctly.

Well if the table import in H isn't working I'd say brush up on that Python!

Save CSV file in UTF-8, it should start to work. Table Import is a Python operator itself, it uses csv module internally. Look at the Code tab in Type Properties.
