Set Field [ result ; Encr_EncodeShortSafeAscii ( "-Unused" ;  
			"• Don’t forget to have fun, Günther and Børg! " ) ]

gives this result: “%B.V-PDon/Tt-Pforget-Pto-Phave-Pfun-\-PG.Pnther-Pand-PB/>rg-Q-P%E”

Example 2

In a database you have defined a text field named “patientName” and “patientData” which contains user data. Then you can define a calculation field:

safeNameCalc   calculation     = Encr_EncodeShortSafeAscii ( "-Unused" ;  patientName )
safeDataCalc   calculation     = Encr_EncodeShortSafeAscii ( "-Unused" ;  patientData )

these fields will contain the encoded text. If you export these safe fields you can get it like this:

Bj/>rn<TAB>Broken heel

TIP Use this function for sending encrypted data.
