Converting form captions and menu item captions to Turkish

I am able to convert almost all control captions in VB to the Turkish characterset by declaring a text object, setting the control to the text object, and then having the program run through a small routine that displays the .charset 162 (turkish) for the texzt object.   However, this does not work for the form caption or menu item captions.  Does anyone have a good suggestion, short of a Unicode installation, that would allow me to convert these two ares to Turkish calling the .charset 162????  I currently get a type mismatch error when I try to set these two areas to turkish characterset.  Thanks DDay

Think the problem is that form titles and menus are controlled by Windows settings.  To get around this, you'll need to install the appropriate Windows settings to support the charset.  After that, you'll need to switch the regional settings to the appropriate language, then you should be able to get what you seek.

There's a good book on dealing with such issues called something like "Internationalization using VB6."  If you want, I'll post the complete title and ISBN.
