      Description

      Prior to upgrade to 1.8.+ about 14 hours ago, the download to excel in my quiz worked fine, now it downloads a file that when opened with excel, excel reports an error. (Damage to the file was so extensive that repairs were not possible. Excel attempted to recover your formulas and values, but some data may have been lost or corrupted.)

        This is a known issue, http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=53302, and as you can see, it has been going on for some time.

        It is a general problem with all excel downloads in Moodle, not just the quiz ones, and it is to do with character set issues. I suggest you add your suggestion to that thread, to help the other people who are working on this.

        This fix to MDL-9911 should have fixed this too. Please reopen if that is not the case.
