cannot transliterate between character sets

cannot transliterate between character sets

cannot transliterate between character sets

Hello, I'm trying to convert a paradox table into an interbase table where my char fields in the interbase table have the unicode_fss charset and now every time i read a field in the paradox table with special characters (like the german รถ) and then try to store it in my ibdataset (under delphi) I get an exception saying something like 'cannot transliterate between character sets'...unicode should actually support *all* characters, shouldn't it? What can I do, does any of you know??
Thanx a lot,

RE: cannot transliterate between character sets

I'm no Delphi expert but have you defined the IB database's default charset as unicode and also set the character set for the TIBDatabase to 'UNICODE_FSS' ?
