I´m searching a utiliy (comandline preferred) to convert between NT and DOS character sets, e.g. äöüÄÖÜߧ. I know a work around to go through ms Word, but it is too ugly. Thank you in advance.

I think there is one in the NT resource kit.

Do you remember a fragment of the name? Workstation or Server Resource kit?

Commented:
This was Workstation 3.51 I believe. It was a long time since I looked at it. But I see no reason why it shouldn't still be there in 4.0. I'll look for it next time I have access to the Reskit CD.
Looked in Reskit for 4.0 WS.  Couldn't find anything.

Do you have access to a good text editor?  I use Multi-Edit. Should be a simple task to write a macro and have it do a whole subdirectory at once.

I think you have a font prob... (like normal fonts are not ok, but CE fonts are OK for slovak etc...)
just install those good old fonts and that'll do it...
(i've had a simmilar prob and all tha documents i had i converted this way:
    1.select all
    2.change font to fontCE

that's all folks CIA
PS: you didn't specify what you want to convert... (i suppose docs:)
