Default Access controls, vba and arabic script

I'm struggling with this one. We have developed an application in Access 2003 using standard forms and controls (text boxes, etc). If I enter (by pasting because I can't type it in directly) so arabic text into a text box it displays OK. However, if I want to do anything with that text in vba I run into problems because the value of the text box only displays as "???????" ...

e.g

Dim strText as string

strText = me.txtText
Debug.Print strText

Output is something like "???????"

What am I doing wrong, or will this never work?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards

Tim
