Convert to ASCII characters


We are extracting information, such as article descriptions to send to some legacy systems. These systems can only accept ASCII characters (space, A-Z, 0-9, a-z, and the standard characters on the US keyboard). These are decimal values 32 through 126 or hex values 20 through 7E.

SAP apparently allows entries of decimal values 127 and greater (such as ½).

We need to either remove or convert such characters to spaces.

Is there a function to do this? Or some simple command?

Thanks in advance for your help.
