I am using rtf to develop a XML report. The output type is excel so I am using force Ltr property to allign few fields. But I am getting special character when I copy and paste a value of the O/P in the notepad. When I don use Force LTR the problem is not there but the allignment goes for a toss. So is there any way by whcih the issue can be resolved keeping the force LTR.?
