I know how to deal with german Umlauts but I would like to understand.

Think of a *.csv file that contains strings like "Grünberg" and that has to be opened in Excel ( Office 2003 ).

It works if i use PWideChar(UTF8Decode(String)). Got this tipp here in the mailinglist!

But  UTF8ToAnsi(String) fails.

Why is UTF8ToAnsi(String) not enough?

LHelp tells me about  UTF8ToAnsi():
"Utf8ToAnsi converts an utf8-encode unicode string to an ansistring. It converts the string to a widestring and then converts the widestring to an ansistring."

That is NOT  the same as  PWideChar(UTF8Decode(String))?

Tipps are welcome.

Thank you!!
