> Dear Sirs,
> My name is Atanas Kiriakov. I am an archaeologist in a regional
> museum, not a professional programmer, but I have a good working
> knowledge of Access and so I am responsible for the museum
> information system. The only obstacles I've met so far concern the
> "Bibliography" database, where in ONE field I have to enter
> letters from the Bulgarian, English, French, Greek, Turkish...
> alphabets. When I tried to do it trough InsertSymbol or Character
> Map, all the previously entered characters converted into the code
> page of the inserted symbol.
> For the time being I've resorted to a TTF of my own - using Font
> Monger I replaced the useless characters with all the letters I
> need, but this is not an universal solution and it does create
> some minor sorting problems. I insert these symbols with the key
> combination "Alt+character_code". Is there a key combination for
> inserting an Unicode character trough its hexadecimal code while
> writing in an Access 97 database field? And if this is not
> possible under Windows 98 / Access 97, could it be done under some
> other operating system and/or other DBMS?
> Please, help us with professional consultation.
> Thank You in advance.
