I wanted to update a record in the data file in order to test my update method. The method works fine except when writing '�' (under hourly charge). This appears as a minus number when viewed. The reason is that although '$' is part of the ascii table us Brits aren't so lucky. i assume I'll have to use only dollars when writing to the file.

The character encoding is 8 bit US ASCII for the field values. So you don't have to worry about the British pound symbol.
