Parameters > Citect.ini File Parameters > CtEdit Parameters > [CtEdit]ANSIToOEM


Indicates whether Windows ANSI characters are converted to OEM characters when CitectSCADA writes to data files (like dBase). This parameter applies to conversion in both directions (OEM To ANSI also).

Note: The project must be compiled and run with the same setting of this parameter, otherwise string conversions and logins that rely on ANSI to OEM conversions will not work. For example, you cannot compile with the value of 0 and then run with a value of 1.

If using an Arabic version of Windows, you should set this parameter to 1.

Note: This parameter must be set to 0 to support multiple languages.
