Special character

Author: a.gene@effort-remois.com (aureliegene)


I load a file xml with the command fileload.
In the file xml, a string contains the character ÿ
I want to replace ÿ by Y but the $scan not find ÿ

Kind regards



  1. perhaps this character has been converted when the XML was loaded?

    What is the charset specified in the XML?

  2. No the chartset has not been converted.

    Other characters for exemple oe is convert Œ

    In the xml, the charset is Loÿs

    In the variable string Loÿs is scan but not fileload

    Sorry for my level of english !!!!

  3. Hi Aurelien

    1) Can you post us/me or paste into this form the XML in question?

    2) Do you use a field or variable in which you load the XML file
          If it is a field, is the syntax set to "FUL" for "full character range"?

    3) Try to import the XML-file into a field which is visible on the surface (create a test form ... )
          After importing, check the context of the field.
          Try to edit the context.
          Leave the field after modifing any part (best is to insert a blancat begin) of the XML-context
          Does UnifAce give you any "hint" about a problem with the characters used. E.g. 0131: "invalid font"
