When attempting to load data into a Microsoft SQLServer 2005 Datastore using an Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) flow:

When checking the data in the target table, it appears that some characters have been lost and are represented as question marks (?).

For example, multi-byte data 원 용 선 present in the Oracle table is translated to ? ? ? after being loaded to Microsoft SQLServer.

Why does this happen?

Note that in the Microsoft SQLServer table, CHAR and VARCHAR data types have been used.
