Values displays as ??? in Caspio Table




I am trying to make a school project, creating a simple enrollment app but while testing I encountered thisimage.png.38850bc5364c7b863c82999dd02ec235.png

As you can see, some of the values in my table contains "??". I am not sure if that is because I am using chinese and korean characters for those values? I am using formula field for the Subjects and I want to use it for display in a Reports DataPage.

Anyone knows why this is happening and if there is something I can do about it?

Hi Arthur.

I found this in Caspio's HowTo Articles: https://howto.caspio.com/function-reference/

I thought it might help you. Check under "Text Functions".  Basically, you will just need "N" before the single quotes that wrap your values in the formula field.

For example:

This way, your values will be converted to NVARCHAR which allows Unicode characters which most other language characters are. This will not affect your normal English characters.

Here is a sample output on the table and on a report datapage:


It even works with emoticons/emojis. 

I hope this helps you. Good luck on your project.
