Changeover from CP1252 to Unicode: Experince?
Author: firstname.lastname@example.org (istiller)
Hi freaks Our applictaion (from 1990) still runs CP1252, but now it's time to use unicode :-) No problem at all in UnifAce, just change all "C" to "W" and compile all components. But wait, what about the strings in database, we have to convert them too. Okay, export data to XML, alter the database, switch over to new defintions (new components,URR,...) an load the data. So far so good. But our customers do have databases up to 150 GB data. How to handel this amount of data in a proper way? Any experinces out there, how long it take to convert n GB of data by Uniface? Or is it possible to convert CP1252 to unicode by SQL itself? TIA Ingo
