ASCII and hexadecimal codes for diacritics and special characters

View ASCII and hexadecimal codes for diacritics and special characters to use in Connexion client.

Enter diacritics and special characters using macros

If data used with macro commands such as CS.GetField or CS.SetField contains diacritics or special characters, the data appears with diacritics following the letters to which they belong. They do not appear as Unicode characters.

The standard function Asc returns the ASCII code mapped to the character. See an example of inserting characters in the description of ControlHeadingsAll.

The following table gives the ASCII codes and the equivalent MARC-8 hexadecimal codes for diacritics and special characters available for use when you write macros that insert characters (the client inserts the correct information automatically when you record macros):
