I need to change &sysencoding from 'wlatin1' to 'UTF-8' so that sas will keep Japanese characters 'as is ' and not change to question marks (ie ???)
Caveat : I only want to do it for one program not the entire system.
Can anyone help me out with the code to accomplish this?

How are you currently running your SAS programs?
If you are created .sas files and running them from the command line then add the -encoding option to the command line.
Or better still create two different commands that you use to run SAS. One to use WLATIN1 and another to use UTF-8. For example on our systems we have both a sas94 and a sas94_u8 command.
