1 Create the character set by defining:

  • The external-to-internal and internal-to-external hexadecimal codes for both lowercase and uppercase translation for each character in the set.
  • A unique character set name.
  • A unique identifier (use a value in the range 65 to 126).
  • See Creating a Custom Client Character Set.

    2 Load the character set information into theDBC.CharTranslationsV. See “Loading a Custom Client Character Set” on page 76.

    3 Enable the character set. See “Activating a Client Character Set” on page 79.

    Note: A maximum of 16 character sets can be active at one time.

    4 Optionally assign the character set as the default. See the section beginning with “System Determination of Client Character Set” on page 55.
