Euro Symbol, Charset 850 And Unicode

Dear experts,

I'm having a problem with the Euro symbol on my SQLServers which all have characterset 850 and Unicode collation 1033. As far as I can see charset 850 does not contain the symbol, but if I run a query

DECLARE @nstring nchar(12)
SET @nstring = N''
SELECT UNICODE(@nstring), NCHAR(UNICODE(@nstring))

Result: 8364

So the Unicode character 8364 is the Euro symbol. My question now is how do I have to write a statement so that the symbol is shown in the output.
I need to use something like the following:
Select 'Costs:'+ + convert(money, table1.costs)
Result: 123.00

I tried several options but never get the right output. Is there any way of doing it or do I have to change the characterset.

Euro Symbol Appears Like A '?' Instead ''

I have SQL Server 2000 SP3 and the default Code Page is:

I have a Table with a column of the type 'text'.
In this column sometimes it's necessary introduce the euro symbol (). Now, when we write this symbol, after the SQL Server show it with a '?'.

I tried change the column collation to 'Latin1_General_CI_AI', SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AI and SQL_Latin1_General_CP850_CI_AI but there is the same problem.

Does any know what the cause off this problem is?

Thanks in advance!

Problem Saving/retrieving Unicode Characters NVARCHAR With Unicode Collation (java Jdbc)

I'm connecting to a SQL Server 2005 database using the latest (beta) sql server driver (Microsoft SQL Server 2005 JDBC Driver 1.1 CTP June 2006) from within Java (Rational Application Developer).

The table in SQL Server database has collation Latin1_General_CI_AS and one of the columns is a NVARCHAR with collation Indic_General_90_CI_AS. This should be a Unicode only collation. However when storing for instance the following String:

... it is saved with ? for all unicode characters as follows (when looking in the database):

The above is not correct, since all unicode characters should still be visible. When inserting the same string directly into the sql server database (without using Java) the result is ok.

Also when trying to retrieve the results again it complains about the following error within Java:

Codepage 0 is not supported by the Java environment.

Hopefully somebody has an answer for this problem. When I alter the collation of the NVARCHAR column to be Latin1_General_CI_AS as well, the data can be stored and retrieved however then of course the unicode specific characters are lost and results into ? So in that case the output is as described above (ie __ÙÚÜÛùúüû_ÅÆØåæøßÇçÑñ__??????_??????_????)

We would like to be able to persist and retrieve unicode characters in a SQL Server database using the correct JDBC Driver. We achieved this result already with an Oracle UTF8 database. But we need to be compliant with a SQL Server database as well. Please help.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Working With Euro

My web application needs to show prices in £ and €.
Can u give me any guidance as to how to display prices in Euro.
Currently, I have 2 'money' columns in my database and then i am using  
<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "EuroPrice", "{0:c}") %>
to display the euro price. But as u can see this would automatically display the £ sign in front of the price.
So my question is: how can I display 2 different currencies on my app

SSIS: Unicode And Non-unicode String Data Types

Hi guys and gals,

I've had some great headaches with SSIS this morning, which I have managed to get a workarounds for, but I'm not happy with them so I've come to ask for advice.

Basically, I am exporting data from an SQL Server database into an Excel spreadsheet and hitting issues with unicode and non-unicode data types.

For example, I have a column that is char(6) and have added a data conversion step to the data flow, which converts it to type DT_WSTR and then everything works!

However, this seems like a completely un-neccessary step as I should be able to do the conversion in T-SQL - but no matter what I try I keep getting the same problem.

SELECT Cast(employee_number As nvarchar(255)) As [employee_number]
FROM employee
WHERE forename = 'george'

ErrorValidation error. details: 1 [1123]: Column "employee_number" cannot convert between unicode and non-unicode string data types.

I know I have a solution (read: workaround) but I really don't want to do this everytime!

Any suggestions for what else to try?

Cannot Convert Between Unicode And Non-unicode String Data Types.

I have an Excel Source component hooked to an OLE DB Destination component in my SSIS 2005 Data Flow Task.  After I mapped the excel columns to the OLE DB table columns i get these errors below.  I noticed that for the first error, the Excel Field format (when you mouse over the column name in the mappings section in OLE DB component) is of type [DTWSTR] and the corresponding SQL field from my SQL table that it's mapping to is of type [DT_STR] when mousing over that field in the mappings in the properties of my OLE DB component.  All table fields in SQL Server for the table I'm inserting into are of type varchar.

print screens here:

Non-Unicode To Unicode Data Conversion

Hi all, we are now planning to upgrade our application from anon-unicode version to a unicode version. The application's backend isa SQL Server 2000 SP3.The concern is, existing business data are stored using collation"Chinese_PRC_CI_AS", i.e. Simplified Chinese. So I thought we need toextract these data out to the new SQL Server which is using Unicode (Iassume it means converting them to nchar, nvarchar type of fields for Idon't enough information from the application side, or is there ageneral unicode collation that will make even char and varchar types tostore data as Unicode?).The problem is what's the best and most efficient way to do this dataconversion?bcp? DTS? or others?thanks a lot

Easier Way To Convert Non-Unicode To Unicode

I have built a large package and due to database changes (varchar to nvarchar) I need to do a data conversion of all the flat file columns I am bringing in, to a unicode data type. The way I know how to do this is via the data conversion component/task. My question is, I am looking for an easy way to "Do All Columns" and "Map all Columns" without doing every column by hand in both spots.

I need to change all the columns, can I do this in mass? More importantly once I convert all these and connect it to my data source it fails to map converted fields by name. Is there a way when using the data conversion task to still get it to map by name when connecting it to the OLE destination?

I know I can use the wizard to create the base package, but I have already built all the other components, renamed and set the data type and size on all the columns (over 300) and so I don't want to have to re-do all that work. What is the best solution?

In general I would be happy if I could get the post data conversion to map automatically to the source. But because its DataConversion.CustomerID it will not map to CustomerID field on destination. Any suggestions on the best way to do this would save me hours of work...

Is There One Collation That Includes All The Eastern Europen Languages And Latin 1 Charset.

Can I specify a collate value for a column in a table that includes all the possible languages in the world or atleast Latin 1 and Eastern European languages.

My DB Collation is set to Latin 1 and the columns in the tables are all nvarchar or ntext, but certain hungarian characters are not displayed correctly.

What do all these collation codes represent:
















They seem generic. Is there one collation that includes all the Eastern Europen Languages and Latin 1 charset. Please let me know.

Question About The @ Symbol

I am a bit confused on the many uses of the @ symbol, such as in assignments and in use by stored procedures.  I am not quite clear on when it needs to be used and when it doesn't, what it means, etc.  Could someone either point me to a good reference, or explain?  (I have read several books on MS Sql server, but somehow missed this.)  I use the symbol, but I don't understand when to use it and when not to, without referencing an example.

We are running SQL Version 7.0.
I recently set up a simple snapshot replication. After restarting enterprise manager a hand symbol showed up under the database barrel as if a share symbol.
Am I correct in assuming the symbol means replication. Is there a source that explains what the various symbols mean?
