How to display chinese character data in SAS Data Integration Studio 3.4

Hi,

In database, I have a table with a column (Chinese_Name) which display the chinese character name of a person.

When I bring in the table to the SAS environment, I only able to see ??? instead of the chinese characters. So, what should I do to able to display chinese characters?

The column description: (Current)
Column: Chinese_Name
Data Type: Char
Data Length: 80
Format: $80.
Informat: $80.

Is it something to do with the format, informat of the column ?
Format: $utf8x.
Informat: $utf8x.

Thanks.

Yours Sincerely,

Please review the useful information on SAS National Language Support (NLS). Also, you will want to review the SAS support website http://support.sas.com/ for possible HOTFIX maintenance for Chinese NLS support.
