Saving Import files as CSV / UFT-8 Format
In the program you’re using (e.g. Microsoft Excel) Choose Save As, then select Save as CSV UTF-8 (.csv) file format.
> Important: You must insure the Character Set Encoding is UTF-8.
Otherwise, some characters that are created with Microsoft Software may not display correctly, due to incorrect Character Set Encoding. For example you may see:
- CafÃ©, Instead of Café
If you see these invalid Characters in your CSV file then save your file in UFT-8 Format, or Upload your Modifier Options then Edit Option Names in Foodics to replace the incorrect characters from the console.
Import your CSV file to The Console in (Inventory > Items).
