I am using ArcMap 10.1 and want to generate report using Report Designer.

In Report header i use Label Control for display unicode character (Gujarati) but when i copied gujarati text from word doc and assign to label text property, it display as question marks, 'garbled' or 'nonsense'.

Is there a simple way to display Gujarati characters in an ArcMap label?
