Thanks a lot for your reply.

I tried to set the host/client encoding, however, when I create new tables 
using Chinese, it reported an encoding error...... also with other queries..... 

May I ask encoding of pgAgent? May it reading from a text file? Or I can use 
notepad++ to convert and then copy??

First guess is that client_encoding is getting set differently in the
pgAgent-initiated sessions than elsewhere, causing incorrect character set
conversions to happen.

... unfortunately, I don't know anything about how to adjust that
in Windows.  A brute-force way would be to issue "set client_encoding"
in your scripts, but there may be a better way.
