I'm trying to create an address locator to use in an ArcGIS viewer for Flex application. I end up with a locator that does not support accented letters like ö, ä, ü, õ. Doesn't matter wheter I use the service via the Flex application or just query via browser - the locator is unable to process these accents.

I have tried with the feature class in a gdb and shapefile, locator in a gdb and in a folder, setting the gdb-s and locators configuration keywords to DEFAULTS (which is UTF-8),  installed ArcGIS 10 SP2 (Desktop, Server) Fullwidth Unicode Characters and Conversion Patch both for my PC and Server. Both are running v10 SP2. Still no luck... :(

Has anybody a clue what might be the problem?

Thanks in advance,
