I am using Limesurvey Version 2.65.0+170502 (using MS SQL server as Database),

With the surveys in Arabic language.I can't retrieve all comments from the surveys responses as they are saved on the database like "??????????????????????".


Any Help

Hello,

to understand your configuration:
LimeSurvey is run on the Windows Server or on a Linux Server?

For information : seems to be only the Response of the user (Reponse table) not the question text.

Thne : LimeSurvey use a different system when creating DB (with MSSQL) for Question and for Reponses. Maybe.

Assistance on LimeSurvey forum and LimeSurvey core development are on my free time.
I'm not a LimeSurvey GmbH member, professional service on demand (or search sondages pro).
An error happen ? Before make a new topic : remind the Debug mode .
