I've just discovered, it's not simple quote ' but a quote ’ (i don't know the name of this quote...)

You need to change general_csv_encoding from ISO-8859-1 to CP1252 or UTF-8.

$ irb
1.9.3-p545 :001 > s = '’'
 => "’" 
1.9.3-p545 :002 > e = s.encode("ISO-8859-1")
Encoding::UndefinedConversionError: U+2019 from UTF-8 to ISO-8859-1
        from (irb):2:in `encode'
        from (irb):2
        from /home/xxxx/.rvm/rubies/ruby-1.9.3-p545/bin/irb:12:in `<main>'
1.9.3-p545 :003 > e = s.encode("CP1252")
 => "\x92"

works with CP1252 (with UTF8 special char like é wasn't correctly interpreted under MS WORD)

thanks ! :)
