Dear All,

I am using JDK 1.5 with MS-SQL 2000(devlopment)/ 2005(deployment) as backend. I am try to store japanese text/charachters in the MS-SQL using jdbc. But whatever the japanese charaters are getting stored in MSSQL as ?????(which I think are corrupted-as read from internet.).
1. My problem is I want to store them exactly in the Japanese language formats(Kanji/or so).
2. In the same way when I am retriving it from database I am getting ???? only. Not the actual Japanese charaters which I have inserted.

P.N.: I am using:
mssqlserver.jar ---DB Driver.. connectivity

Can anyone suggest me the solution for the same?

Thanks in Advance,

Best Regards,

Presumably you are storing the data in an Nvarchar or Ntext datatype column? (rather than just Varchar or Text datatypes)
