Conversion CHAR to RAW Unicode Problem

Former Member

Dear Experts,

I use the FM  SCMS_TEXT_TO_BINARY to convert one table with CHAR into table with ROW,

but at the and the special characters will not be displayed correctly.

So there is a problem with UNICODE.

Is there may be an alternative FM or other way to do such a conversion with unicode?

Hi,

Yes it is due to Unicode.

A single char in Unicode is made up of 16 bytes whereas in RAW a single char is made up of 8 bytes. Thus you will have to use a conversion FM.
