Displaying special characters in ALV report.

Hi Experts,

Can we display special characters in ALV reports? Special characters such as tick mark.(Like in character map(Font Bookshelf Symbol 7) of windows ).

I tried with icons in ALV report, I was able to display tick icon in the ALV report, but when we export the report in to a excel, the icons comes in as Hexadecimal code.

Can any we display special characters like tick in ALV report or display the icons in excel aswell?

I will be gratefull for the <urgency reduced by moderator> response.
