Some string converted with ADO (MS/SQL) in Delphi
Posted on 2004-08-09
I have started using ADO instead of the Borland BDE for application written in Delphi 7 and accessing a MS.SQL 7.0 database.
However I have a strange behavior when access some string in the database that contains text with european accentuated letter and special characters.
The behavior is the following : when I run the application from within the Delphi development environment for debugging/testing it, no problem. All characters retrieved from the DB and stored are okay.
But if I run the delphi executable from a prompt, some characters are not displayed correctly.
