OK. UTF-8 is plain ASCII coded on 1, 2 or 3 caracters. If MS Excel is UTF-8 
compatible and smart enough, it should display data. I see no problem in 
this. Same as for Access 2K.

The only solution I see would be to convert UTF-8 to UCS-2 in VB with our own 
scripts. This ***might allow the grid to display UTF-8 caracters. Whooo...
