Revision 2019-03-02 10:03 by K7ZCZ
Steps To Reproduce 1) Fire up the logbook. Open any Access database.
2) Use the "+" button in the tool bar to open the ALE to add a record.
3) Enter any bogus call sign -- or, your own.
4) Wait for whatever call sign lookup you've got configured to execute.
5) Paste this text "鈴木 一朗" into the "Name" field. It is the name of a famous Japanese baseball player.
6) Paste this text "〒105-0011 東京都港区芝公園4丁目2−8" into the address field. It is the address of a landmark tower in Tokyo.
7) Press "Add" to add the record.
8) Close the ALE.
9) Double click the new record in the logbook view to edit it.


BUG#1) The "Name" field shows a bunch of question marks.

BUG#2) The "Address" field does, too.


10) Using Microsoft Access, open the database file that you chose in Step #1.
11) Review the record in the Access table editor. Note that the data is correctly landed in the fields.


10) In the editing ALE, paste the same strings again, erasing the question marks.
11) Press "Update" to save the changes.
12) Close the ALE.
13) Double-click the record in the logbook to edit it again

14) The strings are displayed correctly.
