Arabic characters showing as garbage

Post Author: microsoftee

CA Forum: .NET

I have a report created with version of Crystal Report that came with Visual Basic 6.

Now I have to use same report in my .net application. When I show this report in my application or open it in Crystal Reports XI, X or 8 version it shows garbage character in place of Arabic text everywhere in all reports e.g. "C?U? C???UU?" .

Please help me to solve this problem.

Regards,

Adil

    Thanks for reply.

    Its not related to DB connection because its showing the report text fields (constant fields) as garbage. In CR designer it sometimes shows Arabic data and text fields correctly but in my application its always showing garbage characters.
