Shift JIS encoding


I need to encode a text field or variable to Shift JIS in order to submit a url via a webviewer.

FileMaker can import export and sort by ShiftJIS but I can't find any way to encode to it or calculate it. I need a hexadecimal code in the form %12%34 for each character.
Leaving the characters unencoded doesn't work. Encode as url doesn't work either as that just encodes the unicode characters.

Before I start into trying to build a code lookup table in FM, does anyone have any ideas or pointers?
