Conversion from MDMP to Unicode

Hallo.

I would like an information.

We are upgrading from R/3 4.6C MDMP to ECC 6.0 Unicode through the CU&UC Guide.

Our codepages installed (Table TCPDB) are 1100 and 1700 (for Greek).

We are setting SPUM4 and I see that in the CU&UC Conversione guide there is:

"2.2.2 Initialize/Edit Language Lists

Before the database check, you have to maintain two lists which contain languages and code pages. They are used in conjunction with language keys to determine the correct code page to use for converting table data.

2.2.2.1 Restrictions

You cannot edit the lists during a running worker job!

Active languages can be added to or deleted from both lists before the Consistency Check is started. This also includes changing the code page information for a language as described in the following sections.

Inactive languages can be added to or deleted from both lists before the scan Tables with Ambiguous Language Information is started.

Systems with Code Page 1100

If you use the wrong frontend code page 1100 for logon (with SAP GUI for Windows) to SAP systems running with code page 1100, you are able to input some characters that are not in the system code page 1100. Example: the Euro sign (€) and the trademark sign (™). Those characters get lost during the conversion!

system code page = 1100 frontend code page = 1100

no € and ™ in the Unicode system

There is a workaround to prevent this:

For all languages which are displayed in the Language List with code page 1100 change this entry to 1160 which corresponds to Microsoft code page cp1252.

system code page = 1100 frontend code page = 1160

€ and ™ in the Unicode system

"

So I understand that in the Language list settings of SPUM4 I have to put:

Language

Code Page

Active

-

1160

DE

EN

1160

NL

1160

NO

1160

PT

1160

SK

1160

RU

1160

ES

1160

X

Note the parameter:

zcsa/installed_languages=EFDGIS

Are my language settings right?

In particular, is the entry for EL (Greek) right or have I to put, instead 1700 for EL?

So

Language

Code Page

Active

EL

1700

X

Could you help me?

Thanks.

Mario
