Hi Patrick,

This was resolved by changing the Unicode server setting to use proper encoding. Thanks

First step: find out when the accents are gone. Then troubleshoot you locale settings for that connection / environment.

This is very likely caused by different code pages.

As Linus points out: Determine where you loose the accents. Is it already when loading the data into SAS or only when you write the data to the Excel? What code page is used in Oracle and what code page is used in SAS?
