Chinese Characters to display/print on 2000 Terminal Server

Guest

I have a client that has about 20 people on a terminal server who want to add
chinese characters in part of their product description. We can easily add
those characters in Excel or Word. But as soon as we import that data to
Access, the characters become those lovely little squares, meaning I'm
missing a font or something. They will also not print properly either (they
print fine in Excel and Word) I actually think it could be a font related
problem, and Microsoft used to post a Language Pack with a bunch of fonts but
I can no longer find that font pack.

The version of Office is 2000. The Access programmer doesn't really want to
upgrade yet, though I think I can convince her to go to Office XP. She has
problems with her programs with Office 2003 so that's not going to happen.

Does anyone know where I can get Chinese font packs? I do a google search
and it all come back in Chinese (which I do not read).

Other important info is they use the input locale Chinese (Taiwan) and they
use the Keyboard layout/IME - Chinese (Traditional) -Big5 Code.

Any info would be great. And please, if you need more information, please
don't hesitate to ask.

Thank you very much.

Have you gone into Access and ensured that it's using the same font that
you're using for the Chinese characters in Excel and Word? If Word can
find the font, Access should be able to.
