Using the tool above to generate sets of the phonetic alphabet we are trying to store this data into our database MSSQL 2005, I have tried using varchar, nvarchar, ntext but it seems to store the data in a funky way. See screen shot

Any suggestions here?

Also in the drop down the text appears even funkier see 2nd screen shot Screenshot 2showEE.jpg

Hi There,

You definitely need the MSSQL collation service, this can be deployed either at Server level or database level.
See below link for collation that will accept your character sets:

See also SQL collation settings:

Let me know if this is OK for you.
