I am using Powerbuilder 11.5 to connect to MSSQL 2005 database. But when I browse a table in database painter, greek characters are displayed as ||||||| in database painter. I think this has to do with the encoding. Any assistance will be kindly appreciated

It sounds like the columns were not defined as unicode.  Those are the data types such as nvarchar, nchar.  Unfortunately you are going to have to re-enter the data.
