Conversion for Native Character Sets

SAP ASE supports character set conversion between native character sets that belong to the same language group.

If the server has a native character set as its default, the clients’ character sets must belong to the same language group. In figure below, the clients’ character sets and the SAP ASE default character set all belong to language group 1. Data is correctly converted between the client character sets and the server default character set. Since they all belong to the same language group, the clients can view all data on the server, no matter which client submitted the data.
