How do I remove special characters / hyroglyphs from print output (MFC Dialog print)?

I'm new to MFC programming and have been working on a Database application.  I'm more experienced in COBOL and VBA so alot of this is new to me.
I have attached an example of my print layout and the coding to produce it, any help / guidance would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.
void CDB3tutorialView::OnDraw(CDC* pDC)
{
	// TODO: Add your specialized code here and/or call the base class
	CDB3tutorialDoc* pDoc = GetDocument();
	ASSERT_VALID(pDoc);
	CString strTmp;
	CDatabase database;
	CString SqlString;
	int ysize = 400;
	CString	sFirstName = _T("");
	CString	sLastName = _T("");
	CString	sAge = _T("");
	CString	sProject = _T("");
	CString	sCompleted = _T("");
	CString sDriver = _T("MICROSOFT ACCESS DRIVER (*.mdb)");
	CString sDsn;
	CString sFile = _T("c:\\Users\\A Telfer\\Desktop\\TestDB.mdb");

	CRect rect (100, 100, 10000, 10000);
	if(pDC->IsPrinting())
		pDC->TextOutW( 200, 200, _T("First"));

		pDC->TextOutW( 2200, 300, _T("----------"));
		
		sDsn.Format( _T("ODBC;DRIVER={%s};DSN='';DBQ=%s"),sDriver,sFile);	
		database.Open(NULL,false,false,sDsn);

		// Allocate the recordset
		CRecordset recset( &database );

		// Build the SQL statement
		SqlString =  _T("SELECT FirstName, LastName, Age, Project, Completed ")
				_T("FROM Project");

		// Execute the query
		recset.Open(CRecordset::forwardOnly,SqlString,CRecordset::readOnly);

		// Loop through each record
		while( !recset.IsEOF() )

			// Copy each column into a variable
			recset.GetFieldValue(_T("FirstName"),sFirstName);
			recset.GetFieldValue(_T("LastName"),sLastName);
			recset.GetFieldValue(_T("Age"),sAge);
			recset.GetFieldValue(_T("Project"),sProject);
			recset.GetFieldValue(_T("Completed"),sCompleted);

			pDC->TextOutW( 1300, ysize, sAge);
			pDC->TextOutW(1800, ysize, sProject);

I have actually found out a solution to my problem.
It appears changing the Project "Character Set" to 'Multi-Byte' instead of 'Unicode' and a bit of code tweeking has resolved my problem.  (Example attached)

Any comments on alternatives will be appreciated.
