general question

Hi all,

we are on the verge of upgrading from 4.6c to ECC 6.we are planning to convert tha programs from non unicode to unicode.

My thought intially was to convert all programs before upgrade, but since 4.6c is not unicode compatible ,so i am left with no other option of upgrading first and then converting to unicode.

Let me know if iam wrong or is any other way to convert and then upgrade.

    I am in the same situation as you, and I know of a lot of changes that I will need to make. To my knowledge there is no way for us to start the transistion of these programs. The changes to the statements are not supported in the 46c environment. You will need to upgrade, then do the task of converting the custom code to be compliant.

    hi i have worked on Unicode project to upgradation, u can first check the compatibilty of ur programs for unicode using transaction UCCHECK

    This will point out the errors which u might face in the Unicode System,

    also if u first move ur objects to the Unicode system this will be brute force and as the unicode checks active in attributes in not marked active u will have to face runtime errors often in unicode system

    So first change the objects for unicode compatibility and then move the objects to unicode system

      Hi ,

      we are currently in 4.6c version so there is no way we can check the programs for unicode syntax or errors .

      i am not sure whether there is any other way that we can check programs in 4.6c for the compatability for unicode .
