In a Progress the codepage used is ibm8858-1. On a unix machine.
We dumped the data as follows :
export stream strA to /u/dirr/ppd/tesk.txt convert target "1252".
for each tab1 no-lock :
put strA tab1.field1 ";"
In vi the file tesk.txt contains for the french characters \212 etc....
The french words après is showed as Apr\212s .
Normally we ftp that file to a PC and then via a dtsx it is loaded in sql.
But in sql the french characters are also not in the correct format.
Does somebody knows how we have to export the data.
To load the data in sql the codepage 1252 is used.
