AppInventor sends the text in UTF8 format. If the program in which you open the file does not support UTF8, maybe you can change the encoding somewhere in the settings?
Which sheet are you sending data to? How do you save them? I would have to test it.

If you are using Microsoft Excel, there is a function to import text from other encoding formats.

Do you use AppInventor to save in a google sheet, then download the sheet from google and open it in MS Excel?

So yeah. I tested a bit and found that the Web.POST.text block does not work with non-ASCII characters.

It works and sends country-specific characters:

This doesn't work and sends blank characters instead of country-specific characters:

Maybe I should use a different block for encoding?


Thanks! I will try it.
