Click here to copy the following block
' Strip all extended ASCII characters
' (that is, all characters whose ASCII code is > 127)
'
Function StripExtendedASCII(source As String) As String
  Dim index As Long
  Dim bytes() As Byte
  
  ' the fastest way to process this string
  ' is copy it into an array of Bytes
  bytes() = source
  For index = 0 To UBound(bytes) Step 2
    ' if this is an extended ASCII character
    If bytes(index) > 127 Or bytes(index + 1) <> 0 Then
      ' convert this char to Chr$(255)
      bytes(index) = 255
      bytes(index + 1) = 0
    End If
  Next
  
  ' return this string, after filtering out all Chr$(255) chars
  StripExtendedASCII = Replace(bytes(), Chr$(255), "")
      
End Function
