Code Page Selection

Hello,

We are doing an upgrade from 4.6b to ECC6.0 and also a Unicode conversion. Could someone clarify the following doubts related to vocabulary maintenance?

  • Will text elements used by programs be automatically translated into the right Unicode page (e.g. based on the language key provide for each text elements) or does the code page selection need to be done via the vocabulary maintenance?

  • Any other development objects that could be affected if the code page selection is not done via the vocabulary maintenance?

  • What would be the impact on the development objects if the code page selection is not done via vocabulary maintenance?

Thanks in advance,

Reena

    Hi Reena,

    > * Will text elements used by programs be automatically translated into the right Unicode page (e.g. based on the language key provide for each text elements) or does the code page selection need to be done via the vocabulary maintenance?

    I assume you have an MDMP system. For such a system, all entries in language dependent tables will be converted based on the language key of the according entry. Text elements are stored in language dependent tables and therefore will be converted properly (if the code page fits to the language) independently of the maintenance of the vocabulary maintenance in transaction SPUMG.

    Actually I do not know of any. However I have to admit that I am not a developer ...

    > * What would be the impact on the development objects if the code page selection is not done via vocabulary maintenance?

    If you have already executed the SPUMG scan "Tables without language info", you can check the tables which inserted words into the vocabulary (choose on the selection screen : STATUS = W). Now you have to know whether the content of the listed tables is relevant for your development ...
