Using local language characters with dBase databases

Problem

When you print labels connected to dBase databases it can happen that some of your local language characters do not print correctly. The cause for this Misconfiguration in language settings of the BDE (Borland Database Engine) causes this problem.

Solution

  1. Start the program BDE Administrator. In the Start menu type BDE Administrator to open database settings.
  2. Open Database tab and open settings 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.
