Using International Characters - HELP!

(1) I went straight from Roots 3 into UFT (?ver 2.2) and am now using UFT ver 3.0. Former R3 users will remember the goofy way we had to enter characters such as "", "", "", "" etc. Are these holdovers from my R3 file causing me problems in UFT? Here's why I ask ... Most of such characters entered in R3 do not print correctly in UFT and I've spent eons trying to "buff" them.
(2) I'm totally unable to get a "sizeable" FJ from UFT into either FTEditor or MS Word (using Word 2000). Anything more than 3-4 generations usually just blips out, i.e. stops short of finishing the lineage and/or footnotes. Could these two problems POSSIBLY be related?
(3) If so, what's the possibility of doing some sort of Global Replace via Excel? I know opening the .DBF files with a spreadsheet can actually corrupt the .DBF ... H E L P !
