This question may be duplicate with another but my question is this.

I want to set or change the font style in header of table (like hindi font or any other) of database. I am using sql server 2008 on my system. I have no idea to changed the font (like kruti dev 010 or dev lys 010 or etc). I want some headers of the table in english and some other in hindi language.

I hope this information will be complete to understand.

please reply if any one have some ideas about such kind of things.

When using SQL, you can use any characters almost: that is, the sysname datatype which is nvarchar(128)

Example (copied Hindi and Urdu text from Wikipedia)

    اردو int NOT NULL PRIMARY KEY,  --SQL editor reads *only* the column name right to left
    foobar int NULL
SELECT TOP 1 * FROM sys.objects O ORDER BY O.create_date DESC;

If you mean in the GUI, then this should be Windows locale dependent.

If you mean the GUI designers, then frankly I don't know because I use raw SQL.

If you mean the actual SQL language, then it is English

Edit: Under Tools.. Options, you can select fonts. This may be what you want:

as you shown how I can write मानक in table header. Is there any option to change the font in database tools or any other way – Ghost Answer May 8 '12 at 8:00
