How to determine unicode/ non-unicode system

Hi all,

May I know how do I determine a unicode/ non-unicode system? My SAP version is SAP R/3 Enterprise, SAP_BASIS 620 level 60.

When I checked in System --> Status. Under the SAP System Data, it says Unicode System: No. But when I go in to SM51 --> Release Notes, then under ICU Version, it says ICU Version :2.6.1 Unicode Version 4.0. Is this a unicode/ non-unicode system?

Please advise.

Thanks.

    Hi San,

    When you check in

    System --> Status.

    it is given whether your system is Unicode System or not

    Unicode System :Yes/No

    as the message is NO your system is not a Unicode System.

    Hello,

    Login to the target system and start transaction SE37.

    Enter function module name: TR_GET_IS_UNICODE_SYSTEM "Test/execute" the function module.

    The result given in parameter EV_IS_UNICODE_SYSTEM.

    If "X", the system is unicode; if space, then it's not.

    If function module TR_GET_IS_UNICODE_SYSTEM does not exist, the system is not

    unicode.

    Hi San,

    1. Once you log on to system then go to System\Status\

    Shows 'Unicode sytem' - Yes/no

    2. se38\rscping \ Shows Unicode or not

    Hope it helps
