CONCATENATE... IN CHARACTER MODE on 4.6D

Hello!

I'm working on SAP version 4.7 and I use syntax CONCATENATE... IN CHARACTER MODE. However, my program needs to run on 4.6D too, but 4.6D doesn't support this syntax.

What would be the corresponding solution on 4.6D?

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards,

Igor Barbaric

    This is an option that is required for unicode - since your 4.6 system does not support unicode you should be fine when you just ommit the option .

    What does the extension IN CHARACTER MODE do for you in 4.7?

    In 4.7, with Unicode turned on, your characters take up 2 bytes instead of 1 byte. In 4.6, no Unicode option is available, so each character takes 1 byte, assuming you are not working in a 4.6 system with multi-byte character sets.

    The IN CHARACTER MODE options says to treat the characters as 2 bytes. Using IN BYTE MODE would indicate that you want 1 byte counted per character. IN CHARACTER MODE is the default in 4.7 and as stated so other posters, not supported in 4.6.

    I have a presentation on Unicode that I got from somewhere. Email me at cfolwell@csc.com if you would like a copy.
