Issue in Opening downloaded CSV file with Japanese characters in Excel

Japanese characters are converted to Junk characters while trying to open csv file, downloaded using Export link of database designer in Excel File.

These database tables are planned to be delegated to users for maintenance. Users requirement is to open CSV in excel directly without having to do additional task of importing data from text/CSV file into Excel by selecting UTF-8 format.

pxExportDataUsingRDPage (of Availability mode Final) is being used to download external database table data to CSV and I am not able to find scope of customizing to add BOM in the downloaded file.

It would be of great help if you throw light on ways to handle this issue.
