Hi folks,

I'm getting an UnsupportedCharsetException (getMessage() returns "GBK") from a call to DriverManager.getConnection( url ), using a MS-Access database. I'm tearing my hair out with this one as I couldn't find any solutions online so far. I've tried alsorts, including inserting "charset=GBK;" or "charset=UTF-8;" into the url and nothing has worked. Can anybody offer any suggestions or solutions? One big problem is that the exception is being thrown in a compiled version of the software in China, which makes it hard to fiddle around with the system (especially since my computer uses an english character set).

Thanks in advance, Lee.
