Only VBA does not recognize non-English characters

Hello guys,
I have a new laptop with Windows 8.1 bought in the USA and I'm having a difficulties with Excel VBA (Office 365 University-64x bought in the Czech Republic - Central Europe). The VBA does not recognize non-English characters (particularly "ř" and
"ů") which causes me problem when running some codes that I wrote earlier on my previous laptop (Windows 7, bought in the Czech Republic with the same Office). 
The problem with non-English characters has occurred only in VBA so far, otherwise I can use these characters normally in Excel cells, Word... I tried to install both English and Czech version of the Office with no change, I also installed Czech proofreading
tools and set everything to Czech in the Office. The location and language preferences in the Windows are also set up to Czech. And it is not a problem of a font. I also mentioned that when I tried to look up these characters, using Ctrl+F, it changes
original ř to r after a search and again this is only an issue of the VBA.   
Thank you very much for any help.

Hi Tom,
VBA for Excel can only recognize ASCII code from 0 to 255, if you use other special characters like "ř" or "ů", it will returns 63(?) to you. To use this kind of characters, you have to utilize ChrW function to parse a decemal to the
character.
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee177465.aspx
for example, the hex code and dec code for these two characters are as below:
  Hex   Dec
ř 159   345
ů 016F  367
So to get these two characters in VBA, you could code as below:
ChrW(&H159) or ChrW(345)
ChrW(&H16F) or ChrW(367)
You can get the hex code of the character by searching in the system character map(in the Win8.1 start view, search "character map"), then convert the hex code to decimal code by yourself.
Range("A1").Value = ChrW(&H159) & ChrW(&H16F)
Range("A1").Value = ChrW(345) & ChrW(367)

  • Import filter for Pagemaker does not support non-english charcters in references

    Hi all,
    we found that when importing from Pagemaker, all referenced images that contain non-english charcters (such as German umlauts) in their file names are lost. Apart from this, the direct import works quite well for us, therefore we would like to use this workflow if we can find a solution for the lost images. In some chapters, 95% of the images are imported correctly, in others almost all are lost.
    Is there anything we can do about this? If we rename the images (exchange problematic characters by fixed string), is it possible to correct the references in PM with some sort of search&replace function? These are really a lot of images, so doing it manually would be a bad option.

    I found out how to do it.
    For the benefit of others who might encounter this or similar filename issues, it would be nice to know the root cause.
    On what operating system (and when) were the filename originally created?
    (and what version of PM was used)
    On what OS, and with what version of FM are you trying to import the PM file?
    I presume that there is no issue with the filenames per se under the OS, but just during FM import?
    My guess would be that PM is using some legacy encoding for references to file names that include extended latin characters, and that encoding does not translate at FM import.

  • Is this a bug in VGB? The VGB analyze not work, it does not support non-English Path.

    A clip in path
    containing
    non-English
    directory like Chinese, When I analyze it, I have get nothing,  the Ouput report SUCCESS, the Control show 'Frames:0 Worst Error: 0 Average RMS:0 False Positives:0 False Negatives :0', no green
    curve,.
    After I move the Solution and clips to a No
    non-English
    directory, the VGB analyze is work. The green curve of clip is appear.

    That is a known bug and no fix at this time. You will need to use your workaround that you said works.

  • Firefox does not recognize upper case characters on my keyboard, when i try to log in on a saved website with a case-sensitive user/password. repeated Capslock on, then off, or Shift on, then off, sometimes corrects. thx

    this happens almost every time I get onto my computer. doesn't happen when using Explorer

    Greetings NoNameGiven,
    If I understand the problem correctly (I’m not sure I do) you would prefer ‘iii’ to be read as “eye eye eye” rather than “three”? The alt text property is the only way that I know of to make this happen. Hope this helps.

  • ITunes does not recognize non-iTunes Store-purchased music - Windows 7.

    No matter which iTunes Media folder location I select in 'advanced preferences', only songs purchased from the iTunes store are available in iTunes; not any ripped or otherwise downloaded music. This happened three days after downloading the latest iTunes update, after uninstalling and reinstalling iTunes, and after moving music from a CD into the default folder location in 'advanced preferences'. After all this, I ripped a new CD in iTunes that played and displayed just fine in iTunes and was placed in the exact same folder as the 80 other CDs that are NOT visible, playable, or available in any other context in iTunes. I am spent. What gives?

    Right click on the video in iTunes and select Get Info, go to the video tab and see if you can set Video Kind to Movie
    When you managed to get it on the phone and you were able to just hear the sound, did you play the file from the video tab on your phone's ipod?

  • Non english characters in DN cannot be retrieved

    We are using Netscape directory server 4, protocal V3. We have a problem related to non-english characters appearing in RDN.
    We publish to Ldap entries using the values from database. For example, we have pubulished an entry to Ldap, based on DB values, the entry should have a DN like: ou=Liege BELGIUM ... LGG1a, <other components of DN>. However, when we call netscape search API (search against uid attribute which does not have non-english characters), the search return the entry, but when further call getDN() method on the returned Ldap Entry, it only returns Li, instead of the complete DN value.
    It seems the entry is corrupted in Ldap. I wanted to delete the corrupted entry and re create new one to test. I tried many ways, but none of them worked, I think it is because DN is corrupted, there is no key value to identify the Ldap entry for any operation(modify, delete).
    You help and insights are much appreciated.
    Thanks.
    Han Shen

    LDAP uses the UTF8 encoding. You must store data in the directory using the UTF8 encoding. This includes DN values. This also means that if you want to be able to view the values in your native character set and font, you must use an application that can convert the UTF8 LDAP data back to the native character encoding. The directory console by default should work for LATIN-1 (ISO 8859) languages if the LOCALE is set correctly.

  • Missing/corrupted non-english characters in Preview

    I know there have been posts on this recently, but this is such a significant problem that I thought it worth keeping live.
    Preview does not display non-english characters in PDFs properly. Things like greek characters are either displayed as the english equivalent or are missing or something else more bizzare. This happens on my MBP and my partners MB, both running Leopard. Acrobat, Word etc have no problems. I had no issues with Tiger
    I would like to report this directly to Apple but I couldn't find how...

    Suggestions
    1) Try with NLS_LANG as
    SWEDISH_SWEDEN.WE8DEC
    2) Make a paramform and enter via paramform (unencoded)
    (This is just for testing purpose)
    3) Change machine locale to swedish and try
    4) Which reports version is this ?
    Please see
    BUG 2713695 - NLS CHARACTERS FOR PARAMETERS CHANGE TO QUESTION MARKS WHEN PASSED ON URL BAR
    Get in touch with Support to see if this is the issue and if "yes" get a one-off patch.

  • Support issue for non-English characters (in html forms)

    Hi group!
    I just want to post an issue here and see if anyone else has the same problem. First off, Im running Windows XP MCE but the French version (not the english version). This may help find out where the problem really is.
    Second, I know a bit of html and such, and I'm referring to HTML Character entities for this thread, there's a quite complete list here for reference: http://www.faqs.org/docs/htmltut/characterentitiesfamsupp69.html
    I noticed that some, not all, non-English characters written in a textarea (which is, basically, a multi-lined input box) doesnt pass well or at all to the server when sending the form from Safari. Most of the time, the content of the text area is reduced to the beginning and ends where the first accentued character is met.
    The most used French accents (&eacute;, &agrave;) are usually well interpreted (but may, once in a while, produce that bug too) by safari, but &ocirc; and &icirc; doesnt do that well.
    Oddly, this bug doesnt happen all the time and doesnt "crash" in the same manner everytime.
    So I started a thread just to see if there's anyone else having issues with any non-english characters mostly in forms. Probably flash/shockwave does work, but I'm not sure- I have not tested yet.
    Acer Aspire 5044   Windows XP   Turion 1.8GHz, 1Gb SDRam, ATI 200M xpress

    Yes, it is a known issue. I also noticed that it sometimes works, but most of the time it does not. It will hopefully be solved in the future. According to http://www.apple.com/safari/download/ changes that will come include:
    # Support for International users
    # International text input methods
    # Advanced text (contextual forms, international scripts)

  • Linux or Java? :Cannot display non english characters

    hi,
    i am trying to implement a GUI that supports both turkish and english. user can switch between them on the fly.
    public class SampleGUI {
    JButton trTranslate = new JButton(); /* Button, to translate into turkish */
    /* Label text will be translated */
    JLabel label = new JLable("Text to Be Translated!");
    trTranslate.addActionListener (new ActionListener(){
    void ActionPerformed(ActionEvent e){
    String language="tr";
    String country="TR";
    Locale currentLocale;
    ResourceBundle messages;
    currentLocale = new Locale(language, country);
    messages = ResourceBundle.getBundle("TranslateMessages",currentLocale);
    /* get from properties file turkish match of "TextTranslate "*/
    label.setText(messages.getString("TextToTranslate"));
    Finally, my problem is my application does not display non english chracaters like "� &#351; � &#287; � i" in GUI after triggering translation.However, if i do not use ResourceBundle and instead assign directly the turkish match for that label (i.e. label.setText("&#351;&#351;&#351;&#351;&#351;")), GUI successfully displays turkish characters. what may be the problem?
    ps : i am using redhat linux8.0, j2sdk1.4.1. current locale = "tr_TR.UTF-8". in /etc/sysconfig/keyboard , keyTable = "trq". There seems no problem for me as i can input and output
    turkish characters. OS supports this. Also jvm gets the current encoding from OS.It seems as if there is a problem in reading properties file in inappropriate encoding.
    thanx for dedicating ur time and effort,

  • Changed my Apple ID email, but ICloud does not recognize my new login, only my old one (which is now non-existent) HELP!

    Changed my Apple ID email, but ICloud does not recognize my new login, only my old one (which is now non-existent) and requires the password to do anything. Everytime I go onto the ICloud  page it shows my old email and requires the password, but I can't exactly type in a password because that won't work. I can't find a way to change my email or delete ICloud.

    If the old ID is an earlier version of your current ID, do the following:
    Make sure you are signed into iMessage and FaceTime with your current ID.  If they are signed into the old ID, go to Settings>Messages>Send & Receive and Settings>FaceTime, tap the ID, sign out, then sign back in with your current ID.
    Then temporarily recreate the old ID by going to https://appleid.apple.com, click Manage my Apple ID and sign in with your current iCloud ID.  Click edit next to the primary email account, change it back to your old email address and save the change.  (You should not have to verify the old email account so it doesn’t matter if you no longer have access to it.)  Now go to Settings>iCloud, turn off Find My iDevice and enter your current password when prompted (even though it prompts you for the password for your old ID).  Then go to Settings>iCloud, tap Sign Out (or Delete Account if you are not running iOS 8) and choose Delete from My iDevice when prompted (your iCloud data will still be in iCloud).  Next, go back to https://appleid.apple.com and change your primary email address back to the way it was.  Now you can go to Settings>iCloud and sign back in with your current iCloud ID and password (your data will download back to your device).

    Is this a problem with the computer or with the word processor? MS Word for example seems to think its grammar and spelling are better than mine - they are not. You have to go into MS Word preferences and uncheck all the useless "help" it wants to provide.

    Did you try recovery mode?  Hold down the home button as you connect it to iTunes.  iTunes should pop up a window that says "iTunes has detected a device in recovery mode" and give you the option to restore.
