Subj:   Re: UNICODE to LATIN Conversion
 
From:   Victor Sokovin

  I am having problem in converting a CHARACTER SET UNICODE to CHARACTER SET LATIN  


Are you sure you want to convert the data in that direction? Unicode uses 16 bit to store one chracter while Latin only uses 8. This means that non-Latin chracters cannot be converted in genera. One could think of some customized solutions for certain languages which use 8-bit encodings(e.g., Greek or Russian) and for certain purposes but such solutions do not come out of the box. So, to answer your question in general: yes, you are likely to lose the data.


Regards,

Victor
