NT vs Win95 & BDE = please help urgent

Hi

I have a problem with accentuated characters (,,,...). I have a MS SQL
server. If I access the database thru an MSSQL bde connection on a win 98
machine everything is fine : I can see the special characters and I can
search them also.

BUT if I run the SAME program on an NT 4 machine, it does not work. The
accents are replaced by other unreadable chars??? In this case of course I
also use a MSSQL alias.

whats wrong?

ps: I have tried with delphi 3 & delphi 5 and its the same... so I guess
there is something wrong with NT config somewhere (code page 850).

thanks

philippe
