Connect to another Oracle error


I have just setup a DB connect between a BW 7.0 in AIX system with an

Oracle 9idatabase(Windows) . The

connect and extraction is fine but the Chinese character from the

Oracle are corrupted,starting from the PSA until its data target.

Our Oracle in BW 7.0 NLS_CHARACTERSET is UTF8,




when I set connect parameter as:"XXX" or "XXXX:UTF8" the connection is OK,just the chinese characters are corrupted,when use"XXXX:US7ASCII:UTF8",error ORA-12154 occurs.

Any help or suggestion is greatly appreciated.

Best Regards

Martin Xie

    Hello Martin,

    please have a look at sapnote #606359

    -> 7. How does the R/3 system use character sets?

    For the R/3 system, you should always choose a character set for the client that matches the character set of the installed database. If, for example, the database was installed with the WE8DEC character set, you must also use the WE8DEC character set on all client hosts - irrespective of the code page used in the operating system.
