greek char

P: n/a
Hi,

How can i store a greek (alpha) char in a text field with Postgres 7.2 ?
When i read the field, i get an '?' char instead of the alpha char (?)

Thank's

Look at your output using a binary viewer of some type. The font you
are using in whatever client you are using to connect to the database
may not have the character you are trying to display - a common
default is to use a ? in place of the unrenderable character. In
other words the character may be stored and retrieved by Postgresql
just fine but the display just doesn't have the character you want.

Cheers,
Steve
