Foreign characters in a puzzle macro


New Member

I've got a puzzle program which displays foreign characters fine in the input text box but all accented characters are being output into the created puzzle grid instead of being included in the clues section of puzzle. This problem only occurs with accented characters like those in Spanish or German.

The macro for making the puzzle uses ascii, like Dim ascii, or
ascii = Asc(Mid(s, k, 3))
If (ascii <> 10) Then
If j > jmax Then
jmax = j
End If
A(i, j) = ascii

I've tried changing "ascii" to "unicode" everywhere in the macro but that just mucked things up really well.

Thanks in advance for all suggestions.
