Copy/paste from Win SQL gives strange characters

    I often run SQLs using Win SQL, and then copy the result into Excel, by
    Ctrl-A, Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V.
    Recently this have resulted in "strange" characters as limiters between each
    field. A small rectangle is inserted between the fields.
    I wonder if I may have changed any settings which has made this start
    happening.
    Any suggestions would be appreciated.
