Pranav writes "Hi,

I am currently having 10 databases on my sql server 2000 on Latin1_General character set. I want to change the character set to make them store multibyte data correctly. I looked at some sql server documentation, and could not find anything like UTF8. Please advice what character set should I choose so that my database can store multibyte data also.

Thanks in Advance

Pranav Sharma"

You just need to use the nvarchar and nchar data types. I think that's what you want, at least.
