  • hi! i create a table using "urdu" field names, its works, but when i create a form using this table access generate an error: "Microsoft Access cannot sace the form or report, beacause it displays characters from a language that cannot be saved in your current system locale.

    switch your system locale to the language in the form or report, and then try again."

  • I don't think that I am in a position to test the problem, but have you tried to create the fields in English, and add a CAPTION to them, with the Caption in Urdu?  Even in English, someone can see the field name as something for the developper, which will eventually be used in VBA code or elsewhere, without spaces or other 'illegal' characters, while the caption is intended to be displayed to the final user, and so, the caption can contain spaces, or VBA-illegal character for a 'name'.
