Answer : how to get data in UTF-8 mode from database?

first of all, you have to use unicode types to store international language data. types start with 'n' like nchar nvarchar ntext are used to store unicode data in sql server. moreover if you are storing literal text through insert statment then you have to prepand 'N' before data.


Insert into TestTable

Values(N"ahmedabad")      !-- instead of ahmedabad you can consider arabic data.
