    You can't just change the character encoding, you'd also need to change the old characters, theres no easy way to make this transition.

      I know thats not easy.but I need it. with old encoding I cant use ajax features.
      I think no character change need. if i have a text file that saved in utf-8 encoding and copy and paste the content of my vb sql databse in that and save. the new file is that i need. but wich pc can open 600 MB text file?
