    Unanswered: Language problems

    I have English (default) and Hebrew languages installed. However, I can't seem to get the Hebrew strings to read in Hebrew, or even in English. It comes out gibberish. How to fix?

    Thanks,

    Sam

    Aha! I have narrowed down the problem. It only occurs in VBA. However, if I type in Hebrew directly in the Property Sheet of the text box, the problem goes away. Problem: I have literally hundreds of Hebrew strings in my VBA code, and it's much too tedious to change that. Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Sam

    check the internationalisation of your office installation
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton

    I found a workaround. Change the Options-->Tools-->Editor Format-->Font to a font that has both English and Hebrew characters. The Hebrew characters come out fine (even though I hate the way the screen looks).

    However, my original problem still exists, regarding the error message. Please see the thread called "ouch-growing pains."

    Thanx,

    Sam
