FIX: MODIFY MEMO Command Ignores Code Page
2.50a | 2.50a MS-DOS | WINDOWS kbprg kbfixlist kbbuglist
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft FoxPro for MS-DOS, version 2.5a - Microsoft FoxPro for Windows, version 2.5a
When you are using the MODIFY MEMO command, FoxPro ignores the code pages of the underlying database, causing character strings to appear in country- specific characters and accented characters to not be displayed properly.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in FoxPro 2.5a for MS-DOS and FoxPro 2.5a for Windows. This problem was corrected in FoxPro 2.5b for MS-DOS and FoxPro 2.5b for Windows.
