Resume of Terms:

single code page- 1 code page

MDMP- more that 1 code page

unicode- you can use all the languages.

non unicode- only one language

> non unicode- only one language

Well - to be precise: non-unicode = only one codepage.

You can nicely use English, German, Spanish, Italian, Portguese, Dutch and French on a non-unicode system together. As well as you can use Polish, Czech, Hungarian, Croatian and Slovenian on one non-unicode system.

Hi Raghava

unicode is relevant for international system landscapes with multiple languages, and provides a better support for that scenario.

Non-Unicode systems can only run one code page, limiting the language usage to English and the additional language(s) available for the given code page. Due to this you need some special constructions for a truly global system landscape.

When upgrading to SAP ERP 6.0 (2005) you need to consider that topic. Most interesting starting points are

- Upgrade Master Guide SAP ERP 6.0 (service.sap.com/erp-inst).

- SAP Note 928729 -> Combined Upgrade & Unicode Conversion FAQ

- Unicode Homepage (service.sap.com/unicode)

Hi Raghavendra,

The customer developments done in earlier version of SAP R/3 may not be compatible to support multiple languages. All the report programs should undergo Unicode corrections.

Unicode correction facilitates in following way.

u2022 Unicode allows all R/3 users to install a central R/3 System that covers all business processes worldwide.

u2022 Companies using different distributed systems frequently want to aggregate their worldwide corporate data. Without Unicode, they would be able to do this only to a limited degree.

u2022 With Unicode, you can use multiple languages simultaneously at a single frontend computer.

u2022 Unicode is required for cross-application data exchange without loss of data due to incompatible character sets. One way to present documents in the World Wide Web (www) is XML, for example.

Thanks,
