Using UniCode & International Charecters with Peachtree Accounting Program
Up to Peachtrre Version 2003 we were able to use Unicode
for entering International Charecters, such as Arabic,
in the description field of Invoices, Receipts, Purchase
and Payments. We enter Arabic text in the description
field and were able to use peachtree succesfuly for our
With version 2004 Unicode charecters are displayed as
empty square boxes. it appears that the font used in
input templates has changed and does not allow for
foreign characters to display correctly.
Unicode, to my understanding, was adopted by Microsoft in
Windows 2000 and Windows XP and is a character set for
protocols evolving beyond the use of ASCII, that enables
a far greater range of names and characters than can be
achieved using ASCII or extended ASCII encoding for
character data. If we type Unicode in the search box of
Windows XP Help, we will find this explained.
Windows XP has a language bar that can be used to switch
the language (using Unicode) and that makes us able to
enter characters in whatever language is installed
besides English. My Regional setting in the Control Panel
is set correctly and Arabic works in most other Programs
including Peachtree Complete 2003. The print driver is
set correctly and prints Arabic correctly even with
Peachtree Premium 2004 as it did with version 2003
In previous versions of Peachtree up to version 2003 we
were able to enter foreign Characters in the description
field of Invoices, Receipts, Purchase and Payments.
With version 2004, it appears that the font used in input
templates has changed and does not allow for foreign
characters to display correctly.
In PPA 2004 Foreign characters are displayed as empty
square boxes when we activate the extended characters by
pressing Alt+Shift (or changing the language from the
language bar) This problem does not happen with PCA 2003
on the same computer and with all other programs. It
appears that the font used in these input templates is
not the same font used in previous versions of Peachtree.
How can this problem be solved ?
