dbf file character encoding missing from Base and Calc

Post by ododos »

I have some .dbf files encoded in Greek (DOS/OS2-737). Although it is a valid encoding (see xbase specification) and openoffice supports it in Writer, it doesn't offer the same choice for Calc and Base. Is there a reason for this, someone forgot to include the additional choices or am I missing something?

Thanks

I'm sorry that no one answered your question. Unfortunately, I don't know the answer. Did you find a solution? What version of OpenOffice.org and what Operating system ar eyou using?
