problems with Chinese characters (import & export)

Postby Bjorn » Fri Jun 16, 2006 3:12 pm


I have Compiere 2.53a installed on Windows 2003 Server, English version, support for East Asian fonts installed.

I can write Chinese characters in text files on windows, I can enter and save them in Compiere and also display them later (so Oracle seems to support it and with JAVA it can be displayed).

When I generate a report they will also show. However, when I export this report a '?' is shown for each Chinese character, so I guess the information is lost there.

When importing the Chart of Accounts I have another problem related to this as it never shows the Chinese characters. I have saved the import file as Unicode...etc. (tried a lot), but either it displays ? or some other characters but not the Chinese.

Does Somebody know a solution to this?
