RFC error while connecting to a non-unicode system

Dear Experts,

We are trying to connect to a BI 7.0 server (non-unicode) from MS-EXCEL using the SAP BW OLE DB adapter. We are getting an error while doing the connection test, " Cannot process Unicode RFC in non-unicode system". We checked the OSS Note : 875767, but it did not solve the purpose. How do we edit the properties of the RFC connection (so as to enable it for non-unicode)? Has anyone faced this issue earlier? If yes, please let us know how you have solved it. Thanks in advance.

    Hi Basker,

    can you please check whether SAP note 1173537 might help you ?

    Best regards,

      I have the same problem. I cannot read the note while I'm a valid Service Market user. The system responds: The requested SAP Note is either in reworking or is released internally only. ;-)
