Does anyone know how to store the following characters in SQL 2005?

̽
α
₣

Something like: select replace(myfield,'&#659','“') from dbo.mytable
where myfieldlike '%&#659%' returns a ?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the quick reply!

I should have mentioned that the field is already nvarchar.

I've also checked the boxes under Regional and Language Options to install files for complex script and right-to-left languages and files for east asian languages.

The ability for SSMS to display it is dependant upon the version of SSMS that you have and not necessarily the data that actually exists.

That is what I THINK.  I do no know definitively since I have not attempted to display those extended characters in SSMS.
