Finaly I can now get rid of the embarasing N instead of Ñ effect in spanish.

AÑO = Year
ANO = Anus

Thank you Alpha I will now be able to measure long time spans in years and not in anuses.
I have waited many anuses for this... humm sorry years ;)

Hi Richard,

My beta copy version is 2461-3360

Thanks for your effords for supporting Chinese and other foreign languages. I tested it but have several problems except viewing Chinese. Please refer to attached video.

I have a MSSQL2005 table which stored names of world countries with Chinese country name. The Chinese country names you see were imported from Excel to SQL table before. Now, I can view them from a grid but any modification to Chinese country name is not accepted, any new record with Chinese character(s) will becomes "?". Field column name cannot use Chinese.

I don't know whether the problem is caused by MSSQL 2005 server settings or A5 itself. Please advise.
