I have a table from Oracle with some fields containing Chinese Characters.  I created a DTS package in MSSQL 2000 server (English Win2000) with transformation of that table from Oracle to MSSQL.  The chinese text field on the MSSQL side are ntext.   If I run the package on my PC (Chinese Win2000), the import is ok.  But if I run the package directly on the testing server (English Win2000), the chinese text imported to MSSQL became unknown characters.  Please help.  Urgent!

Note: I tried to change locale of the testing server to Chinese Traditional and also checked the box of supporting Chinese Traditional characters under Control Panel/Regional Setting.  Doesn't work.

on the test ms sql server (eng win 2000), create the database with default collation of one of the CHINESE collations, i.e. 197 before transfer

Did you restarted the server after that?

if your package is creating the db, it may be inheriting it from the local system's regional settings (which changes between the two servers). try creating the db first

DB is not created by package. Package only does the "import".  Server restarted after changing locale.

is collation matter? I thought it is only related to sorting but not encoding.  I am not sure what you are asking, but my tables uses default collation of the database.

1 server.  The package and  the table belto ongs the  server. Enterprise Manager is installed on my PC(Chinese Win2000) to access the server's database to run the package.  If I run the package directly on the server (English Win2000), chinese text turned monsters.
