Hi,

First, go to control panel --> regional settings and change language for non unicode programs to Arabic.

Can u type Arabic in Notepad?
Can u update and retrieve Arabic characters from query analyzer?

Cheers,
Rosh

Instead use NVARCHAR as it supports national characters this might solve the problem
