You're a star!

This works perfectly:

put line QOUNT of fld "fSSS1" into PROCESST
put replaceText(PROCESST,"unicodeT","t") into line QOUNT of fld "fSSS1"

Thank you buckets!

However, inevitably I cannot resist the occasion to have a "b*tchy" grumble:

The documentation is not up to scratch on replaceText . . .
