Dear All,

I really need help from all the experts here on how to convert, eg. a double byte hexadecimal Chinese character, to a form of standard codes where I am able to save it to and view the Chinese character in my MS Access Database.

For example, a Chinese character "You", has such a code of "Äã". May I know what format is that? If I have a code of such : "884C", how can I convert it to the form of ,eg, "Äã"?

Please help.

Thanks.

In VB,
u can use strconv() to convert it
like this:

Dim s As String
Dim t() As Byte
Dim I As Integer

s = "A?"

MsgBox s
t = StrConv(s, vbFromUnicode)
For I = LBound(t) To UBound(t)
MsgBox "&#" & t(I)
Next

this is unicode.. your can store it this way in your db but when you want to show on the site simply put an content type meta in your header.. no need to Hex or else.. and a codepage.. you should know the code of your character set..

'the below will show unicoded arabic
<%@Language=VBScript Codepage=1256%>
<html>
<head>
<META content="text/html; charset=windows-1256" http-equiv=Content-Type>
</head>
<body>...

To Avoid this problem, you should set your html page with Big5 charset.

<html>
<head>
<META  http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=Big5">
</head>
<body>...
