What browser are you using? And also I would check the ODBC driver you are using for this...make sure you are using one that can handle arabic.

Dear Irshad

Yes my problem was solved.

Go to your server.  control panel > Region and Language

Change your location to your country and restart the server.

This worked for me

I was the same issue for me too. I use 3 databases Oracle, SQL Server and My SQL. But the problem was only with My SQL
