To view the list of character set or collations, issue

select * from fn_helpcollations()

To change the collation / character set of your database, then issue

ALTER DATABASE db_name COLLATE collation_name

Hope this helps

After opening the server management studio and pasting select * from fn_helpcollations(), it just runs in a debugging mode.

Hold on, it finally gave the result.  I will now try and alter the character set accordingly.

Ok, I ended up uninstalling the SQL Server 2008 and reinstalling it and setting the collation during the install.  I actually missed it during my oringinal install.

Thanks.
