I am pulling from an Access DB, and I need to know how to get rid of these s (little boxes) that are coming out through CF onto my pages from Access. I know that my DB assistant had pasted stuff from Word, and I know that is bad, but now...even if I type in from my form, these boxes still come up. I also know that there are two different apostraphies, and two types of dashes, so I really need to know if I should be using a <cfset> to trplace these characters with something more stable, or if I should try to take everything from binary to ascii...

Can you set a form to only input ascii?
Is it possible that my DB has something wrong with it?

Please Help

The issue is not with the db, it is with copy/paste from Word.  You might want to take a look at the following tutorial.

Actually, not. I have tried just using my form, and it still will generate these boxes.
