I have a IIS 5.0 server and I want to show a report developed by Crystal Report 7.0 on the web through ASP. The database is a SQL 2000 and I query the data through some stored procedures. There are 5 subreports on the report corresponding to 5 different stored procedures. When I preview the report in the Crystal Report 7.0 designer, the Chinese on my report displayed normally. But when I call the report through an ASP page (by the SmartViewerActiveX.asp), all Chinese chanaged to "?". Does Crystal Report 7.0 support other language display other than English?? Is there any setting I need to set on the web server? I have tried to set the codepage on the ASP to 950, but its useless. Can anyone help me?

as far as i know only version 9 is unicode compliant so i am suprised you get the corect data in the cr 7 designer! also cr 7 seems very old for IIS 5 (win 2000?). there is an eval copy of cr 9 you could test

I concur.  Chinese language support was added in CR9.

It may be that CR itself can handle the languages but the SmartViewer requires unicode which is CR9.

Look at

I have seen questions from others about the CR9 eval and seem to recall some of them having trouble getting Chinese to display.
