What is a TransTable? When would I want to use one?
An Import TransTable, or Import Translation Table, is a feature of the Meadows DesignMerge and AutoPrice software packages. You can set up a DDF to use a TransTable to translate individual characters as they are merged into the document.
This can be especially helpful when merging a Windows database into a Macintosh document, or vice-versa, a Macintosh database into a Windows document.
When you are merging data into a document and some characters are not displaying as you would expect (for example an accented character), then an Import TransTable may resolve this.
