Dear Thomas,

On most PC's code page 850 has been used and there are not that much 
differences with other frequently used code pages.
Windows is as far as I know not working with the standard MSDOS code 
pages any more and I am using OEM to ANSI conversion to load Delta files 
into DXedit.
If you need the conversion table, let me know.
