    "ANSI" as used by Windows documentation, to mean "neither Unicode nor DOS"?

    > First question. Is there any tool that I can use to detect ANSI data or Unicode data format detection?

    I suggest a web search for "charset detection" or "code page detection" or similar.

    > Second question. can we convert ANSI data type to Unicode data type?

    If you are on Windows itself, use the Windows APIs. There is one like MultiByteToWideChar() (not
    sure about the exact spelling), and there is a COM API as well.

    If you are not on Windows, you could use ICU.
