I have mysql tables where the text is arabic, I want to export them to Excell, If this is not possible , then to csv and then to excell,

How I can do that, I have the phpmyadmin, It is not necessary that I do it through php, but if there is no other choice, i will do it through php

I have written php code, but the result is that the arabic gives me ????

Help is appreciated

This is the code
$host = 'localhost';
$user = 'user';
$pass = 'password';
$db = 'db';
$table = 'table';
$file = 'Subscribers';
$link = mysql_connect($host, $user, $pass) or die("Can not connect." . mysql_error());
mysql_select_db($db) or die("Can not connect.");
@mysql_query('SET NAMES utf8');
@mysql_query("SET CHARACTER SET 'utf-8'");
$result = mysql_query("SHOW COLUMNS FROM ".$table."");
$i = 0;
if (mysql_num_rows($result) > 0)
while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result))
$csv_output .= $row['Field']."; ";
$csv_output .= "\n";
$values = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM ".$table."");
while ($rowr = mysql_fetch_row($values))
for ($j=0;$j<$i;$j++)
$csv_output .= $rowr[$j]."; ";
$csv_output .= "\n";
header("Content-Type: text/x-csv; chartset=utf-8");
header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=file.csv");
header("Pragma: no-cache");
header("Expires: 0");
print $csv_output;
