Issue with Arabic Characters

I am reading a table from SQL Server 2005 which has Arabic Characters in it. I have changed the SAS encoding to 'warabic'. However while accesing the data I am getting Question mark symbols (???????? ) instead of the Arabic characters.

Can anyone help me to solve this issue.

Thanks in Advance.

Re: Issue with Arabic Characters

Try using 'UTF-8' encoding.

 

You can change the encoding of your library like this: 

libname lib_name '   ' outencoding='UTF-8';

I have same problem but in my case data source is Teradata and characters are from various European languages.
