How to check if server is configured as a unicode server

Hello,

 

I'm installing SAS 9.3 TS1M0 Server on my test server.  I'm basing my installation on a different servers sas setup.  I'm at the point in the install where it asks about Reginal Settings and there is a check box that says "Configure as a Unicode server".    How can I check the other SAS installation on the other server to see if it is setup as a Unicode server?

Re: How to check if server is configured as a unicode server

One way to check is to create a table in the work and run proc contents.

You can also run proc options group=LANGUAGECONTROL to see the default encoding value.

 

If you see an ISO format like

ENCODING=WLATIN1

 

Encoding wlatin1 Western

then you know ASCII is being used.

 

Unicode encoding would return UTF-8.

 

See the values here:

Hi Chris,

 

thank you that helped a lot.  It was encoded as WLATIN1 so it doesn't need to be unicode.

 

Thanks
