Hi Mark,

forwarding the original posts on non-english file names by Kenji Kojima 
(2008-01-16) that describe a possible solution of your problem :-):

put "cd ~/Desktop" &cr& "ls" into tScript
set the unicodeText of fld 1 to uniencode(shell(tScript),utf8)

The first line was shell command got list names of files in working 
directory. You got UTF8 filenames. Then it's converted to UTF16 and set 
the test field 1.

Best regards
