This might not be a Moneydance problem, but maybe an Excel problem. When I open a downloaded .csv from my Transaction Filter report in Excel 2013, the check mark, box or diamond appear as special characters within Excel 2013. For instance, the check mark appears as ✓ . When I look at the .csv file using a text editor, I can see the check marks, boxes and diamonds. I could have sworn this didn't happen before release 4077. I'm currently running 4087. I know that I can do a find / replace within Excel to correct this if I really need to use the Cleared field. I've tried changing fonts for the field without success. Is there an Excel setting that I might have missed?

    In the latest MD, select the option to save with BOM. This will open in excel fine.

    Hmm. I'm seeing the same behavior as the OP with both options to Save as CSV as well as with Save as Tab delimited.

    I've verified that saving the Transaction Filter report with the CSV, Encoded for Excel selection works in 4087.
