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

Datatype used in database is VARCHAR

The regional setting is set  for non unicode programs to Arabic(U.A.E)
YES NOTEPAD I CAN TYPE ARABIC
QUERY ANALYZER OF SQL SERVER ALSO SHOWS THE SAME PROBLEM

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