Problems with FM READ_TEXT and special characters


Hi everyone,

I have a problem with some long texts. When they were created someone put some special characters in it (e.g. currency codes, formatting signs, etc.). Now I'm reading these texts using FM READ_TEXT but the mentioned special characters are displayed as # in the result table. The GUI text edit (as it seems class CL_GUI_TEXTEDIT) gets the same result from FM READ_TEXT but is able to display the right special characters. I wasn't able yet to find out how this is done. And I can't use the GUI text edit as I need the texts in an RFC call. Does anyone know how the text formatting is done so that every special character is displayed correctly?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
