    Hi All,

    I am having a problem with the code below. When i download the CSV files its putting a strange character in front of the £ symbol and i cannot figure why.

    $filename = "backup/download.csv";
    $handle = fopen($filename, 'w+');
    fprintf($handle, chr(0xEF).chr(0xBB).chr(0xBF));
    
    fputcsv($handle, array($row['sdate'], $row['red'], getcustomer($row['test']), $type."".$types, "£".$row['price'], "Save", $row['type']));
    
    Code (markup):

    Wrong character encoding? What character is it putting in front?

    Try doing utf8_decode("£") and see if that helps.
