Problems importing with other languages

Problems importing with other languages

jalapejalape Posts: 117Questions: 2Answers: 1

I'm using the extensions/import.html example from the Datatable Editor. Everything works fine, both in export and import, but I have found a problem. When importing data from a csv file with accents or other different characters, the data does not import correctly.
In the File config.php, I have configured
$sql_details > "dsn" => "charset=utf8mb4",
Thank you

    Just to be clear, are you saying that php config change fixes it, or is the problem still occurring?

    The problem continues to occur despite the settings in the config.php file

    Let's try to narrow it down a little. If you type accented characters into an Editor field where you are seeing this issue on import, does it happen on create / edit (i.e. I'm trying to see if we can rule out the complexity of the import, or if it is the import that is causing the issue).

    I have continued working on the application making some modifications such as updating routes and adding features such as hiding and showing columns and responsive design. That is, things that apparently have nothing to do with the import functionality, but now when importing the accents are displayed correctly.
    I honestly don't know what I changed to make this work.
    Thank you all as well
