Read german characters (text File mit Umlaut lesen)

Hii guys.

If I have  characters such as ü,ä ö which are on a German Keyboard and  the file is documented in German,

and try to read the file thr' Read text file fn  i get  "für" for "für"

So labview cant read such characters.


Is there a workaround for this.

Hi Akshay,


surely LabVIEW can read such chars…


Can you attach your text file? What's the encoding of the chars, especially those German Umlauts?

Is it plain (well, extended) ASCII or any kind of Unicode?

Have you looked at this community document and tried things from it yet?


It's a couple years since it was last updated but should still be good.
