Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-1895) RIGHTB and friendsis incompletely specified

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-1895?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16120#action_16120 ] 

Eike Rathke commented on OFFICE-1895:

Side note: in our conference call I doubted that code page ANSI would be used in the conversion. I thought that ANSI would be one defined code page, but apparently it is not, see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-gb/goglobal/bb964655.aspx "Windows ANSI and OEM Code Pages" that lists 6 different code pages. Then there's also http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-gb/goglobal/bb964654.aspx that lists 4 different code pages under "DBCS (Double Byte Character Set) Codepages", which are a subset of "ANSI and OEM". I think those are used.

However, apparently the *B() functions depend on what code page is in effect on the user's system, similar to the CODE() and CHAR() functions, and as such are not portable.
