Iam using resource files in VB.
Whenever I add arabic or urdu text to the String Table fields instead of displaying what it does in the character map, it simply shows '??????'.

Check whether the fonts are installed in the system. Also change the language to your specified language before typing in the resource editor. The language can be changed in Edit String table window by clicking the column head where we type the string

well not that quite. We used the Access tables to store the strings.

Ok.
Nomi,

You mentioned you used an Access database to store the information.  I have an Access storing the data, but when I have VB extract the data from the database, I have the same problem you were having with the String Table.  The data is returned as ?????.  How did you have it work for you?
