Display Chinese Characters in an ActiveX Grid

I am trying to display chinese characters in a grid, and so far, the best I have been able to do is create a multi-column listbox from the MS Forms 2.0 Component Library.

I have read that the MS Hierarchical Flexgrid control will display unicode characters (refer to http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;275201 and http://www.microsoft.com/globaldev/DrIntl/columns/003/default.mspx).  But when I try this control, I see the characteristic "??" instead of the chinese characters.

Does anyone know how to enable Chinese characters in the Hierarchical Flexgrid - or another free or inexpensive ActiveX grid, for that matter?

Thanks in advance.

Set the MS Hierarchical Flexgrid Font to "Arial Unicode MS" to see Chinese. If it still does not work please provide info on how you are loading the Chinese strings.  

You can also use the free VbAccelerator s-Grid2 which is Unicode aware on Platforms NT or later Article/Download from this Link: http://www.vbaccelerator.com/home/VB/Code/Controls/S_Grid_2/index.asp
