hi,

I searched the forum, but unfortunately didn't find a solution for this.

I have to import a textfile (written with notepad) that contains German characters (Umlaute like ä,ö,ü). No matter how I try to read the text, either with

FileOpen(f1,"deutsch.txt",cread) or
FileOpen(f1,"deutsch.txt",cread,,cascii)

deutsch.txt contains
...
Kugeln/Aufnahme
Höchstes Break
...

I always get an empty box or a question mark (with cascii) instead of the character 'ö'. Is there a possibility to define a codepage prior to the import or is any other solution for this?

tia!!
