Title: Importing Unicode Files generated from VBScript
Post by: oxdacat on May 27, 2006, 05:10:42 PM
I would like to import Unicode files generated from Microsoft VBScript.  Unfortunately VBScript can only generate ASCII or Unicode files, not Unicode UTF-8 files.  Is there any way to import these VBScript Unicode files. 

I use VBScript to read an Excel spreadsheet and create the files.  The spreadsheet has my personal layout of words I'm learning, and I am attempting to convert it to a Stackz format acceptable for import.  I've tried various Stackz settings on the import, such as Unicode and other various codepages.  None seems to import correctly.

There are other ways of reading Excel and writing the import files, such as using Microsoft's .Net tools, where the encoding is more precise.  But VBScript is very easy to use and is preferred. 

I've attached an example file.  Thanks for any help.

Lost the file somewhere.  Here it is again.

I assume you refer to the "Import entries from file" command which does currently not offer importing from unicode formatted files.


I added the UNICODE import filter to the todo list.
