Chinese characters not displaying via Access

I've just managed to 'migrate' a number of Access tables to MySQL using Access2MySQL.
One of the fields [cname] contain Chinese characters and Access2MySQL was the only tool (I've tried others, not Navicat though) that could manage to move the chinese characters over.

show create table >>
CREATE TABLE `pbmember` (
`member_id` char(11) NOT NULL,
`ename` char(40) default NULL,
`cname` char(40) default NULL,
<a bunch of other fields>

The chinese characters are viewed correctly using MySQL Query Browser.
However, when I create a linked table to the MySQL table in Access (forms, reports are developed using Access as frontend), issuing a query to the same tables gives me 'weird characters' in the [cname] field.

I've also made sure 'SET NAMES UTF8' is in the ODBC configuration.

Anyone else got any ideas on this ?
Thanks for any help on this !

MySQL version : 5.0
Windows XP
ODBC version : 3.51.12
