    What are your current OS and MS Office Version? It seems to works fine on my end using Win 7 MS Office 2010

    It's probably because of your current MS Excel Encoding Settings and or Computer Language Settings.

    I have uploaded the file, download it here: https://shots.jotform.com/welvin/userfile/JP-Signum-Form - (2013-05-25 02_52_45).xls. Open the file and see if you can see the same error on your end.
