Code page problem - unicode character

Hi ,

Iam working on Report which will transfer the data to Application server .

My selection screen contains the Language option in which the user want to see the role descriptions.

when i try to download the data with Chinese language ,i could see '#' or junk values , as the Code Page conversion was not happening.

So i have changed my "open Dataset " to OPEN DATASET lv_path FOR OUTPUT IN LEGACY TEXT MODE CODE PAGE 8404.

As Code page of Chinese is 8404.

Still i could not see the correct text of chinese even after this change.

Please guide me where iam wrong.

Thanks & Regards,

    or try that variant:

    open dataset lv_path for output in legacy text mode code page '8404' ignoring conversion errors.

    Hi Naveen,

    Have you tried codepage 8304 (traditional Chinese)? If you are seeing # in the output for the Chinese characters then that means the characters do not exist in the target codepage of 8404 so it outputs # to indicate a conversion problem.
