CHARSET trouble !

Hi all.

I am relativelly new in ABAP area.

So, i have to connect external database (ORACLE), to SAP for reporting purposes.

There is no problem with external connection, but i can't display cyrillic symbols in ABAP list.

External database NLS_CHARSET is 'BG8MSWIN',


I have tryed allready all different variants of oracle charsets and conversions with SQL statements. It seems the problem is somewhere else.

    I do not know whether this may be a solution but did you try to use the ABAP statement 'TRANSLATE'? It is used for conversions between different charsets as I remember. You can find more help at SAP's documentations.

    You may also find something useful in the transaction 'SPAD'.

    SPAD -> Click 'Full Administration' -> Tabstrip of "Char. Sets".

    I hope these can be first steps to solve your problem.
