      Description

      When we use surrogate pair of characters in a report , the characters are not processed to render on a Excel export.
      The characters appear corrupted. The behavior is similar when a Excel export is done on the client tool or when the report is published to the server and viewed as a Excel output format.

      Attaching the report and output file.
