Using local language characters with dBase databases

Problem

When printing labels with data from dBase databases it can happen that some of your local language characters are not printed correctly. The cause for this behaviour is misconfiguration in language settings of the BDE (Borland Database Engine).

Solution

  1. Start the program BDE Administrator, it can be found on you Start menu (Start.Programs.NiceLabel.BDE Administrator).
  2. Open Database tab and open setting for dBase Files. Select appropriate language driver for LANGDRIVER (i.e. "dBASE SLO cp852" for local slovenian characters).
  3. Open Configuration tab and open dBase settings in Local.Native. Select appropriate language driver for LANGDRIVER (i.e. "dBASE SLO cp852" for local slovenian characters).
  4. Close BDE Administrator and save changes.
