    You should use the BinaryToString object from the Bitwise.dll.
    There you must declare the Bitwise object with:
    Bitwise.New2(1252) this is the Windows ANSI code page
    then you will get the right characters.

    If you want to write to files and read from with a given code page you can use agraham's BytesConverter library that works similar as the standard file instructions. I have used it because I have older files created by VB6 programs and I wanted the new and old files remain compatible.

    Best regards.
