I had a java application which need to handle 2 databases, Oracle 8i & Ms Access. I need to copy data from oracle to access or vice versa. The data will contain chinese character either traditional and simplified. All data copy from/To Ms Access the chinese character will become Question mark. How can I resolve them ? Thanks.
