RE: Which Character Set for 9.2

No. US7ASCII is a strict subset of WE8ISO8859P1.  This means that not
only is every symbol defined in US7ASCII also in WE8ISO8859P1 but that
these symbols are in the same entries in the respective symbol tables.
That's as good as it gets.

I too am planning to convert from US7ASCII to WE8ISO8859P1. I am moving
the databases from HP boxes to Sun Solaris Systems. I am using Exp/Imp
to migrate. Old DB has US7ASCII character set. New DB will be created in
WE8ISO8859P1.=20

I would like to know if the above character set conversion is required=3F=20
Any help is appreciated.

I completely forgot about the "csscan" utility -- it should give you an
=3D idea of how much work you're in for.

Of course, it's probably best to run this on a recent complete copy of =3D
your DB, if possible...

Yeah, amen, etc.  We took finaancials at 11.5.7 to utf-8 and we had a
lot of data, principally from Russia, that had already been put into
non-utf-8 compliant homebrew software.  Boy was it fun to migrate that
stuff!
