    As I am new to this group, I don't know where to add my further comment,
    so I am sending my reply to mails.
    As James cloos suggested we can get the list from, To some extent this is
    helpful, But I could not see all the unicode char symbols here.
    Mainly I am looking for a .txt file having all this characters(same like
    charts in .pdf), so that I will insert some characters in to my Database
    using "DTS Import" option from sqlserver or using "ChrW" in .net program
    (Microsoft.VisualBasic.ChrW(System.Convert.ToInt32(hex, 6)). Since I
    couldn't find any .txt file with all these characters I can not import
    and "ChrW" is not converting all unicodes I can not use even this.

    Hope the issue is clear now

    Thanks in advance

    You can grab a partial such file at:

    It only has the characters which are explicitly in UnicodeData.txt and
    which do not have a < or > in their name field.

    The format is:

    <HEX> <tab> <[> <space> <CHARACTER> <]> <tab> <NAME>

    (The space is used so that combining characters have something to
    combine with....)

    If you view it in a bidi-aware app, the formatting will probably break
    for the r2l characters.

    It is based on the current version of UnicodeData.
