Unicode Program Problem

I try to read in a unicode file (open file for input as #1) which has some special character like "ề" and try to display it to other application like microsft word using SendKeys function but It's display something else "A".  How do I display the special unicode character "ề" to other application correctly using sendkeys by reading unicode file.

You have to send the key combination that creates that special character, whatever it is.  What keys are pressed in MS Word to make that character?

Is it characters in the shape "ề" --OR-- "&H0111" ? - Will be hard enough to find something, and we need complete info.

If you are using sendkeys, then you have to know the exact key combination to produce that character.  You could use Word automation to write the unicode string to the document, but I've never tried it so I don't know if that will work.

Look, you can send CTRL, ALT or SHIFT combinations using SendKeys, but tell me the combination that you have to press in word so that I can do some tests!

I don't know the combination, but if you look on the Character Map, the character similar to character D(code:U+0111) , Description: U+0111:Latin Small Letter D with stroke.  HOw do I display that specific character using sendkeys

WalterMCommented:
Use:

   SendKeys ChrW$(273)

or

   SendKeys ChrW$(&H111)

This will send the Unicode character with code 273/&H111 to the active window. Note that in order for the character to be displayed correctly, it has to be part of the active font.
