Hello i'd like to ask a quick one.

-Mfc VC++ 6 application.
-NO Unicode support by design.
-Greek characters appear fine in all dialogs since OS is Windows Greek version (?)
-Greek text is both hard coded in c++ source files and retrieved from mysql database.
-ONE specific Edit Box combines mysql data with greek text and hard coded in source files strings, to form a kind of report, and print it on paper.

but:

If i copy text from an Edit Box and paste it in notepad for example, the greek characters appear scrambled.
If i print on paper the contents of the specified Edit Box, the greek characters appear scrambled.

and :
If i print to pdf using pdfcreator the contents of the specified Edit Box, the greek characters appear OK!
If i output the contents of the specified Edit Box to a txt file using CStdioFile class, the greek characters appear OK!

I cannot re-build with _UNICODE macro defined because there are hundreds of code lines that need to be changed to support wide character strings. I just want that specific edit box ONLY to be printed correctly in paper...
:S

Thanks!
