I am using Chinese Win98/ME and file maker pro5 (Eng). I can't input chinese word into my database by typing but i can input an excel file which containing chinese words.

Does anyone know the solution to enable me to input chinese words directly in FMP5?

In case you're still out there wondering how to do this, I've been looking for a LONG time and, finally, last week I found the answer, which works fine on English Filemaker 5 Windows OS.

You need a program called NJ Star Communicator, which you can download from NJ Star's website. Free evaluation for about 30 days, then around US$99, I think. You can type straight into your Filemaker fields. It does simplified and traditional and there are more input methods (pinyin, GB, Unicode etc.) than you'll ever need, plus a handy instant converter.

Format your text fields in any regular font like Times or Arial - the mapping is different if you use MS Song or MS Hei and you'll get weird stuff.

The only drawback I have found - and please I'd like help with this if anyone knows a fix - is that the print quality is poor. It looks very pixelated, even with the print properties set for graphics.
