    I moved a sub from the sbp file to an external text file.
    This sub has this line in:
    DMS_out = degrees & "°" & minutes & "'" & seconds & "''"

    The symbol for the Degree "°" was not recognized by the text editor program (notepad) and did not appear when the program was running.
    I moved it back to the sbp file and it came back...:)

    You can use any text editor, try wordpad instead.

    Acented files and with "difent" charecters must be utf-8 formated...You can do this in notepad..when saving chose as encoding the UTF-8 format ( its default is ANSI..This should solve your problem..

    Thank you, the UTF - 8 solved the problem.
