When I set the font for the different controls they behave different. For example the CEdit shows the polish characters just right but the CButton with checkbox style shows glyphs instead of the special characters. Every control that is owner draw and uses for example the DrawText() function of the device context shows the characters right.

How do I get rid of line feed characters in wrapped text?
I have to use a database which has been imported into Excel. In one of the fields the address details appear as wrapped text. When I unwrap the text there is a "square" character between the 2 parts of the field. How do I get rid of this? All assistance appreciated, thanks. Glad The boxes are probably carriage returns. In Excel, try Edit>Replace what: ALT + 0010(on numpad) with: space(or nothing) OR ALT + 0013 If this doesn't work, post back. There are other avenues of approach.
