Can anyone point us to a tutorial or explain how to save data
in languages other than english to sql2000 database.

I see that the field must be nvarchar or ntext but do not understand
unicode.

That's correct, unicode is the way to go. Books online has samples.

Hi I created the following table
CREATE TABLE [myTest] (
[test] [nvarchar] (1000) COLLATE Traditional_Spanish_BIN NULL
) ON [PRIMARY]
GO

try to insert chinese using
insert into myTest(test) values (N'?????? ???')

the data in query analyzer display boxes instead of the language like it does here. What am I doing wrong.
