Remarks

Conversion result

The result of the conversion is a UNICODE string or buffer. This string (or buffer) can only be handled by variables and functions that support UNICODE.
In case of confusion between a UNICODE and an ANSI string, the conversion will be implicitly performed.
For more details on Unicode, see Managing UNICODE.
