Subject: Need of advice for National Characters in an International
working in an international medical oriented association
it is my first time to deal with an international database
which contains names from many different countries:
all the european west and east, and many mediteranean too.
(turkish for example)
I have an DBF file from hungary. When I modify
the wincharset option to OEM the file is converted correctly
but since I work in ANSI mode for the rest of my patients this
'temporary' conversion is of no use. I will have always one
language which is not presented correctly.
How can I make Danish Norvegian German and Hungarian
first and last names coexist in the SAME database ?
Thank you in advance for your help
