The database fields with values in Traditional Chinese are displayed as garbish code in Crystal Report 9 when connecting to DB2 v7.1EE. Besides, the chinese characters cannot be displayed in command center.
I am not sure if it is the problem of v7.1 as there is no problem when I was using v6. How can I solve this problem?

Are you sure you created your v7 db using the appropriate "CodeSet" for Traditional chinese ?
Did you although check that the Windows codepage of your Crystal Report platform is the one for Traditional chinese ?

Hope this helps.

I forgot to tell you that it is difficult to use an UTF-8 (CodeSet=1208) db as you may need a Unicode version of Crystal Reports...and it may not be possible to use a more classical (Let say 1386 CodeSet) with a Unicode Crystal report client...
==> Unicode is a good think for the future but I will not default starts with it if I can use a more classical codeset.
