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.
Does anyone know to include the Euro sign in SQL statements. I found an Ascii code of ALt+0128, but then I use CHAR (0128) it actually prints the Char (128) which is Ç not €. When I use the € directly in the code the application just shows a ?

I am following the SSIS overview video- URL...I have a flat file that i want to import the contents onto a SQL database.I created a Dataflow task, source file and oledb destination.I am getting the folliwung error -"column "A" cannot convert between unicode and non-unicode string data types".in the origin file the data type is coming as string[DT_STR] and in the destination object it is coming as "Unicode string [DT_WSTR]"I used a data conversion object in between, dosent works very well
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:
‚¬_£_Ã™ÃšÃœÃ›Ã¹ÃºÃ¼Ã»_Ã…Ã†Ã˜Ã¥Ã¦Ã¸ÃŸ£Ã‡Ã§Ã‘Ã±_¼½¾_ÐŽÑžÐ„Ñ”Ò?Ò‘_Ð¿Ñ€Ñ?Ñ‚ÑƒÑ„_Ð‚Ð‰ÐŠÐ‹ ... it is saved with ? for all unicode characters as follows (when looking in the database): ‚¬_£_Ã™ÃšÃœÃ›Ã¹ÃºÃ¼Ã»_Ã…Ã†Ã˜Ã¥Ã¦Ã¸ÃŸ£Ã‡Ã§Ã‘Ã±_¼½¾_??????_??????_????
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 ‚¬_£_Ã™ÃšÃœÃ›Ã¹ÃºÃ¼Ã»_Ã…Ã†Ã˜Ã¥Ã¦Ã¸ÃŸ£Ã‡Ã§Ã‘Ã±_¼½¾_??????_??????_????)
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.
I have an SSIS package that pulls data from a MYSQL DB (Using RSSBus for Salesforce in SSIS to accomplish this). Most of the columns are loading properly, but I have many columns that I need to convert.
I have been using the Data Conversion dataflow task in SSIS to convert the rows.
I have 2 data conversions that work on most of the columns, but the DESCRIPTION column continues to return an error saying "Cannot convert between unicode and non-unicode types", regardless of what I choose on the Data Conversion task. So, basically I want to dump this column data into a SQL table with NVARCHAR datatypes. Here is what I am doing in my SSIS package...
1) Grab subset of data from SOURCE 2) Converts to TEXTSTREAM. (Data Conversion) 3) Converts to STRING. (Data Conversion) 4) Load Destination table. (OLE DB Destination)
I have also tried to simply convert the values to STRING, but that doesn't work either.
So, I have 2 Data Conversions working here that process most of the data correctly. What I can do to load the DESCRIPTION column?
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.
I use Visual Studio's, integration project to load XML file into SQL Server. In the XML file, i have defined collumns as string. When i try to load XML file with parts defined in scheme as string, i get an error "cannot convert between unicode and non-unicode string data type.
Destinated collumns in SQL are defined as varchar and char.

I have spent countless number of hours trying to solve the issue, but to no vail. My problem is SSIS throws "cannot convert between unicode and non-unicode string data types" when i am try to transform data from DB2 to SQL Server 2005. And please note, i tried all possibilities like changing the destination field which is in SQL Server 2005 to nvarchar and also text. But so far no help. And i also looked at previous posts which did not help me either.
Hi,I am writing to a text column in my SQL Server 2000 database. The textcomes from a web form in my java web application, where the characterencoding is ISO-8859-1. (I have no control over the charset, my app isa plugin inside another app.)Characters such as €(ascii 128) and '(ascii 146) are inserted intothe db as '?'.I'm connecting using the free jtds driver, and I'm not specifying anydetails about charsets in my usage of the driver.Can anyone tell me what the default charset in sqlserver 2000 is?Should I be specifying this charset when using my driver?Thanks.
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
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...
Hi, 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. Thanks,
In SQL 2000 DTS, I was able to append data from an ODBC source to a SQL 2000 destination table. The destination table was created by copying an attached source table in Access to a new table, then upsizing it to SQL. The character fields come over as varchar, and that seemed to be fine with the DTS job.
Now using the same source table and the same SQL destination, only in SQL 2005 with Integration Services instead of DTS, I get an error because the connection manager interprets the source text fields as Unicode and the destination fields are varchar.
I could script the table and change the text fields in the destination table to nvarchar, but this could have adverse affect on the application that uses the destination table. Is there a way to make the connection manager see the source text fields as varchar, or have the integration package allow the append even though the destination is varchar and the source is nvarchar?
this sql statement doesn't content any error but if the sentences that want to insert into table contain symbol ' then it will process error when enter into table. ( data contain symbol ' can't insert into table).
May i know how to solve this problem. i did refer to my friends they said need include java class, but they not sure what's the class that i need.
So i help i can get the help here. Thank in advance

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?
I am looking for a way to remove the printer symbol from the report manger because it dows not work on some client machines because they are locked down. For us it is completely sufficient to export to PDF.
Is there a setting or an entry in the web config or something else. A hint would be helpful
I keep getting the error message below when attempting to import a text file (flat file) to an SQL Server Destination using SSIS. This database has recently been migrated from SQL Server 2000 (where I used a DTS Package that worked fine). I plan on doing further manipulation to the file after importing but have so far tried to keep one step at a time. I have tried using a smaller files and different tables but still get a similar response. I believe that the encoding of the text file is ANSI. If it is relevant the database collation is Latin1_General_CI_AS (the same as it was when 2000). Any help anyone can provide will be greatly appreciated!!!
