(Saving file to local )Difference betweeen Unicode and Non Unicode Systems


We are currently changing our Non Unicode based system to Unicode. My question is regarding the difference between Unicode and Non Unicode systems, I observed , when trying to save File using System >List >Save-->Local File.

When we try to save the spool to local file using above , in Unicode system , I am gettng one more field

named "ENCODING" as a input, along with DIRECTORY and FILENAME.

This extra field called "ENCODING" is not present in Non Unicode system.

The problem is when the users are now trying to download the spool using above method, they are getting confused by seeing this additional field. Also in unicode system, the window size of the pop up which displays all the three fields has not changed. So only this "encoding" column is visible, adding more confusion to the users.

My question is whether we can hide this addtional field. or whether we can enlarge the popup window

so that all the three columns viz Directory, Filename and Encoding are visible

    Check if you have configured the SAPGUI according to

    Note 508854 - SAPGUI: How to use Unicode

    The "too small window" problem may be caused by the user having scaled its fonts to more than 100 % in the GUI.
