You can specify collation at the column level in SQL Server 2000. A datatype of nvarchar will store unicode which I assume can cope with chinese. Unfortunately, I don't have an example - hope this points in the right direction.

Hi mate,

I have got the Chinese character in the SQL server table by installing NJ STAR CJK viewer which allowed me to view the Chinese characters.  

Thanks for your help.
