Convert text from UTF8 to ASCII

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application
 

Hi,

I'm trying to convert text from UTF8 to ASCII.

I need to generate a text file with ASCII encoding. But when I create the file, special caracters are wrote  with unknown format.

Could any one say what I'm doing wrong  in the code bellow?

 

FileStream textStream = File.Open(caminhoArquivoTexto, FileMode.Create, FileAccess.Write);

StreamWriter textWriter = new StreamWriter(textStream, Encoding.ASCII);

StringBuilder registro = new StringBuilder();

registro.Append("Otávio Camaçarão"); //Name with special caracters

ASCIIEncoding ascii = new ASCIIEncoding();
byte[] byteArray = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(registro.ToString());
byte[] asciiArray = Encoding.Convert(Encoding.UTF8, Encoding.ASCII, byteArray);
string finalString = ascii.GetString(asciiArray);

textWriter.Write(finalString);
textWriter.Close();

Need to convert query string(date - 09/15/2010) to a text format - yyyymmdd

  
I am fairly new to C # and need some assistance with a form page.  I have created a simple form that requires the user to select a beginning date and ending date.  I then pass the values to my code behind page via query strings.  I have them passing, but I need the format to be change to a different format.  Unfortunately the database does not use the standard date format.  It requires the date to be in a text format as YYYYMMDD.Form: <tr> <td> Beginning Date:</td> <td><asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="begDate"></asp:TextBox> <asp:Image ID="Image2" ImageUrl="~/images/calendar_schedulehs.png" runat="server" /></td> </tr> Code Behind: protected void createReport_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) { StringBuilder url = new StringBuilder("Report/TopCustomer.aspx?"); url.Append("BegDate=" + begDate.Text); url.Append("&EndDate=" + endDate.Text); url.Append("&Brnch=" + ddlLocation.SelectedValue); Response.Redirect(url.ToString()); Current URL: TopCustomer.aspx?BegDate=09/15/2010&EndDate=09/30/2010&Brnch=300I need to have the above URL change to:TopCustomer.aspx?BegDate=20100915&E

Convert Text to Numeric in reports generated by Microsoft SQL Server 2000

  
Our programming team is producing Excel reports using Microsoft SQL Server 2000 and cannot seem to find a way to produce numeric data as numeric.  It is being produced in the spread sheet as text (with the green triangle in the corner of the cell).  If the user viewing the report has an older version of Excel they cannot even convert it to numeric manually. 

Is there a way to produce numeric data as numeric in the Excel report?

How do I create an XML file from a text file containing simple ascii data? Put another way, how do I

  

Im trying to take a text file I downloaded from the US Census Bureau website and transform it into an XML file. It is what the Census Bureau calls a ZCTA file. The schema of the file I have reposted as follows:

ZCTA File Record Layout

The ZCTA file contains data for all 5 digit ZCTAs in the 50 states, District of Columbia and Puerto Rico as of Census 2000. The file is plain ASCII text, one line per record.

  • Columns 1-2: United States Postal Service State Abbreviation
  • Columns 3-66: Name (e.g. 35004 5-Digit ZCTA - there are no post office names)
  • Columns 67-75: Total Population (2000)

AutoCompleteStringCollection for text box in DataGridView 2.0

  
I have been searching for a way to have autocomplete in a DataGridTextBox

for a TextBox outside of a grid using the AutoCompleteCustomSource. Any
thoughts on how I can add this collection? :)

Built-in Functions - Text and Image Functions in SQL Server

  
Text and image functions operate on TEXT, NTEXT and IMAGE data types. These data types are deprecated with SQL Server 2005 and should be replaced by VARCHAR(MAX), NVARCHAR(MAX) and VARBINARY(MAX) when possible. Alternatively you can also consider storing large string values using XML data type. Text and image functions are nondeterministic.

Future versions of SQL Server will not support TEXT, NTEXT and IMAGE data types. Columns with TEXT / NTEXT data type do not support commonly used string functions such as LEN, LEFT, RIGHT, etc. Furthermore, due to the large size of TEXT data you''re likely to see performance issues if you store such data in the database. However, at times you can''t help but use the TEXT / NTEXT / IMAGE data types (for example when supporting 3rd party databases when you cannot change the schema) - this is when text and image functions come in handy.
