Turkish Special characters issue in ECC 6.0, while uploading into table

Former Member

HI All,

We are working with Turkish special characters in ECC 6.0

We are uploading a CSV file containing characters like : İ, Ğ, Ş, Ü, Ö, as soon as the file gets uploaded to application server,

it gets converted to ? or # or Ý.

Also, we are reading the file using OPEN DATASET, ENCODING NON-UNICODE, IGNORING CONVERSION ERRORS, the same characters gets uploaded into the custom table i.e. Ý.

I have also tried saving the file in UNICODE / UTF-8 format, but the issue still remains.

I tried searching SAP Notes as well.

Any pointers to resolve the same will be helpful.

Dear Siddhesh,

Perhaps OSS note 508854 could help here.

Also please be aware that Turkish only runs on ISO codepage 8859-9 (aka Latin-5 / SAP codepage 1610).

I hope this helps.

Best regards,

Hi Ian,

I have gone through the suggested note, but I could not find much for the Turkish characters issue.

Is there any specific file format in which I need to save the .CSV file or any specific things that I need to take care of.

For turkish the codepage = 1254
