I developed some arctoolboxes using python code to do some process on shapefiles. Some of shapefiles fileds contain special Characters as é. at each time my script crashed when it meet those characters in fiel values. What I did until now is just replacing é by e as an example. Some time, it is a lot of work to find/replace all the special characters. I looked on the web for solutions to this problem but unfortunatly, i did not find anything to use without find/replace.
So, I am wondering if there is a solution for this problem?
