Access 2000 and Unicode support

P: n/a
Hello,

Although a lot of postings in the past discuss the subject of A2000
and Unicode support, I couldn't find what I was looking for.
My institute is compiling a dictionary of early middle dutch. The
sources used for this dictionary contain a lot of very specific
characters. Many of them are not available in current font sets, so we
made them ourselves (unicode). Now they have to be used in Access.
What I want to know is if it is possible to use 'home made characters'
in Access 2000 or 2002. Second, is it possible to use two or more
fonts within one field, e.g. a Unicode font and a non-Unicode font.
And finally, can I make part of a field bold, italic etc. or becomes
the whole field bold or italic (just as in A97)?

Thanks,

Peter van der Kamp

Access 2000 supports Unicode.

Well, maybe if you gave some examples (Unicode code points?) of the
characters you mean here. The word "home made characters" below makes me a
little concerned whether you are referring to Unicode code points.
What I want to know is if it is possible to use 'home made characters'
in Access 2000 or 2002.
See above. Please define what you mean here, and give a few examples.
Second, is it possible to use two or more
fonts within one field, e.g. a Unicode font and a non-Unicode font.
No, unless you store rich text and specify the fonts in the RTF. But there
is no such thing as "non-Unicode fonts" under Windows and Access, with the
exception of symbol fonts.
And finally, can I make part of a field bold, italic etc. or becomes
the whole field bold or italic (just as in A97)?


Same answer as the rich text (RTF) answer above.

But please note that DATA STORAGE has nothing to do with font choices or
bold/italic style choices -- the data is independent of this.
