    I'm using RMS v2 and i need to make reports that displays arabic language,
    and RMS doesn't currently support this. we had to make all our reports using
    external programs so I think that's a major disadvantage and should be
    fixed. We should be able to change to the font of the report, Please vote for
    it!

    Salam Ramy,
    have you change the collation to arabic langauge for the RMS data. I know
    when you restore or create the db it is default to english/general collation,
    so once you are in arabic mode and then enter the data in arabic language it
    would come in report too.

    I not tested this but am sure that it will work.

    i think changing collation in store or in HQ will corrupte the
    synchronization between HQ database and store database ,this is very
    dangerous that i faced it befor and very hardly fixed it.

    Salam Akber,
    thanx for the reply.

    I installed the SQL server 2005 using
    SQL collation (used for compatibility with previous versions of SQL Server):
    Dictionary order, Case-insensitive, for use with 1256(Arabic) character set.

    and changed the database collation using the option in : RMS HQ
    administrator| database| change collation
    and made it same as the SQL server which is:
    SQL_Latin1_General_CP1256_CI_AS
    And I did the same with the Store as they must be the same.

    However when generating the system reports (.qrp) the Arabic language appear
    as rubbish.
    And I don't think there is a way to change the font of the active report to
    any font that supports Arabic like "Arabic Transparent".

    I saw other old submits complaining about the same issue in the group since
    2005 ïŠ

    I can't to use RR Special report as I think it's customizable as the active
    report (.qrp)

    Anyway I hope that Microsoft try to fix that if it's not so much trouble by
    adding the ability to change the font or something.
    As I'm sure many customers would need to use non English language in their
    reports.
    Vote 4 it :)
