    Unanswered: File format question

    Hi,
    I can't find a specific forum to post this in. I think SQL is a bit universal so I will put it here. Can someone tell me what kinds of file formats will support Chinese characters? I am trying to find a public domain database program that will store Chinese characters. I was trying to use the Open office database program but I think the *.dbf file format does not support Chinese characters What kind of info/terms/etc do I need to look for?

    I would look for either Unicode or UTF-8 if I wanted something to support international character sets like Chinese. SQL Server, DB2, and Oracle all support it nicely. PostgreSQL can support it nicely, and MySQL can support it too.
