I have made a CSV file with Powerapps and Flow the following way.
In Powerapps I have made a gallery where I filter out a set of projects. These projects are going to be imported into our accounting system as a CSV file.
To make the CSV file I have a HTML controller that gets the data from the gallery with the Concat function.
I have made a simple "create a file" in Flow that gets the filename and content (from HTML controller) from Powerapps.
The file is generated and import to the accounting system works fine... until special characters occurs. (I live in Norway, so common letters like æ, ø and å are getting messed up.
If I open the file in Notepad, choose Save As, it says UTF-8 format as the default, and save it, special characters are good. What I have read, the file is created as unicode as default(?)
So my multi-billion dollar question is how do I get Powerapps or Flow to make the file as UTF-8 as standard so I don't have to open and save the file as UTF-8 to get it to work?

Hi @TurboTape ,
Do you want to create a csv file by flow and encode it to the utf8 format at the same time?
I'm afraid it's not supported to make it currently.
The format of created csv file can not be encoded in flow.
I suggest you post your idea here:
