    I have got the answer, we need to pass MIME TYPE  'APPLICATION/MSEXCEL; charset=utf-16le' and add 'FFFE' in starting of hexadecimal output that we get after processing  function module SCMS_STRING_TO_XSTRING

    code is as below:



             text     = text

             mimetype = lv_mimetype

    *     encoding = lv_encoding


             buffer   = lv_report_xstr


             failed   = 1

             OTHERS   = 2.

         IF sy-subrc = 0.

           CONCATENATE cl_abap_char_utilities=>byte_order_mark_little


           INTO lv_report_xstr IN BYTE MODE.

      Hi katrice,

      Thanks for your response, though i had already read the link that you have provided before posting my question on SCN.

      In the link, they have discussed a temporary solution where user has to go to three manual steps to see the japanese characters.

      Also, in SAP ABAP(not webdynpro) Its easily possible by passing encoding 4103 and file type ASC to FM GUI_DOWNLOAD.

      I need this solution in webdynpro ABAP. I have tried passing different encoding but with no success. Any help or suggestion will be highly appreciated.

      Anyways thanks once again Katrice.

      PS: My code is pasted below



             text   = lv_report_str

            encoding = lv_encode


             buffer = lv_report_xstr.

      cl_wd_runtime_services=>attach_file_to_response(    i_filename  = lv_filename

                                                                                    i_content   = lv_report_xstr

                                                                                    i_mime_type = 'EXCEL' ).
