TOAD for sybase : problems viewing Arabic data

Good day,

I’m using ‘TOAD for sybase’ 2.0.1 to connect to a Sybase 12.5 database on a remote windows NT server

the database contains some Arabic data ,which show up as nonsense in my TOAD (although they appear perfectly in other legacy tools)

the characters appear in latin letters instead of arabic letters

i tried changing the charset preferences in TOAD (tried utf8,unicode and CP1256),but all gives me the same characters

did anyone face such problems before?

thanks in advance
