A2k and non-English codepages
I'm running Access 2000 (no SR, or SR1, same problem) on English Win98 SE. The data entered into tables is in Latvian (Baltic codepage 1257) and displays just fine. The Find dialog, however, does not work correctly. With a Latvian keyboard selected, any accented characters appear as gibberish in the Find dialog. It's not just a display issue, since they also don't find the corresponding characters. All of this works ok on an English Win2k system, just not on Win98. I suspect the Find dialog is not fully Unicode aware on Win9x systems.
My workaround for now has been to use the "?" wildcard character in the Find wherever an accented character is needed, but this is rather ugly. Does anyone have a better solution?
