  • dsi_fnRemoveChars(...

    That's not a system function and as long as we don't know the code of this UDF "dsi_fnRemoveChars", no one can tell you what you have to modify to get the expected result.

    Please have a look at this solved post; may it works for you, too: Accented Words Mapping to English Alphabet
