Hello everyone!

I am trying to retrieve greek characters such as the ohm symbol from the MS Access database. Unfortunately, the sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver has issues with this:

I know it says that the this bug might be fixed in JDK 7, but I do want that "solution"

Is there are alternative jdbc Driver that I could use? Are there any other way in other to retrieve such data?

Thanks! I will appreciate your help

You'll need a commercial driver for this I'm afraid, there are no free ones that I am aware of. Given access's considerable limitations is there any scope for porting your schema to another, better database (e.g. MySQL)?
