Creating or Editing a Translation Table
You can modify a predefined translation table or create your own. When you edit a translation table that is in use, the changes do not take effect until the next time the session is initialized (for example, when you disconnect and then reconnect the session).
|To edit a translation table
- In a text editor such as Notepad, either open an existing translation table file (file name extension .tbl) or create a new file.
Existing translation tables are located in the Attachmate\EAI\PresentationDesigner\ScreenConnectors\UnisysConfig\xlat directory.
- Type or modify the script for the translation table.
For example, to add support for the euro symbol to an existing table, add the statement 0x20AC = value, where value is the value used by the host for the euro symbol, as shown in the included euro symbol translation tables.
|Host Value for the Euro
If you're not sure which value your host uses, contact your system administrator.
||To use the euro symbol in a T27 project, you must have selected the option Raw 8-bit Data on the Connection Settings - T27 Character Interpretation page in your T27 configuration.
For more information about translation table syntax, see Translation Table Syntax.
- Using a .tbl filename extension, save the file in the Attachmate\EAI\PresentationDesigner\ScreenConnectors\UnisysConfig\xlat directory.
To prevent overwriting your changes when you upgrade, you should always save modified translation tables with a new name.
- If the Presentation Builder Runtime Service is installed on a different computer than the Presentation Designer, copy the new file to the same directory on the Runtime Service computer.
