I dont mean to sound really stupid but for some reason I am not getting it. 
What tool can I use to convert from ASCII back to text?

I was not able to find any converters on google and did not see anyway to do 
this using any of the office products.

Thanks for all the help.

Hi there,

Am 15:58 26.04.2004 -0400 teilte security () rexwire com mir folgendes mit:
->We did not find any backdoors but we found out that he
encrypted two columns
->of data in a access database. The data in the columns look like
this
->:)Orwjwlrju)Yu&#402;)\}n);<99
->
->We cant figure out how he encrypted it. Has anyone seen this
before?

No, I haven't seen that before.
However, it's probably "1 Financial Plz Ste 2300" (Not sure about 
the "z", that could be a "%" also, depending on conversion issues.)
 Now you know it, it should be easy to find out what happened. :)
 (Dunno if that's an Access feature?)

Best regards, JO
