Decode UTF-8 in variable ?

Hi Ludovic,

You don't need to set the text to a unicode string to be able to use it. 
What you are doing seems correct, although you don't say if you're 
storing the value returned in a variable:

put uniDecode(uniEncode(myTxt,"UTF8")) into myAscii

This should work. What is the source of the text? Is it something that 
can actually be represented as ASCII?

Best regards,
