French Characters

P: n/a

I've looked everywhere for a solution and can't find one. We have
french descriptions in our Oracle data warehouse that I need to use if
the client is flag as speaking french. Through SQL/PLUS I can see the
umlauts (accents) like the letter . But MS Access mixes them up with
another character. I have set my computers language to
English(Canadian) and ever French(Canadian), nothing changes. I will
not parse every word to test for the characters because the filed is
too long and the recordset large. Any Ideas how I can configure this?
