Symptoms

You have loaded some of your data into an Impala datasource and are querying it via Answers. When you query in Answers, you get results but the data for some columns comes back as Chinese on unexpected characters.



You attempt changing the "DriverUnicodeEncoding=12"  parameter in the odbc.ini and this correct the numeric fields; however, string fields are still display in Chinese.
