Hi Vincent

Thanks for your prompt reply. I may have incorrectly stated the problem. We are converting an old dataflex character mode system called CBA. On the old system ascii 232 is displayed as a different symbol (like an "o" with a line down the middle). However if I type in my number keyboard alt then 232, it shows a different symbol (more like a small p). So when I display the table (embedded) in the current database explorer, it still displays the symbol as in the old system but if you click on the field, it changes the symbol to an "F".

We have tried this from different computers and laptops and all of them are the same. Is this to do with OEM and ANSI?

Regards,
John
