ajith_29,

Modify the locales.dat file in the locales subdirectory where the Sybase client is installed.  Find you platform and change the character set indicator (all entries for section) from CP850 to ISO_1.

The way to get around this is in PowerBuilder, on the sqlca.dbparm= line, explicity specify the character set.

So, in your case, it would be the following for one application:
sqlca.DBAPRM='charset="roman8"'

and the following for the other application:
sqlca.DBAPRM='charset="iso_1"'

Of course, if you already had information previously specified for your PB DBPARM, you would just add the charset= parameter to it.

BTW, the suggestion for modifying the locales.dat file is fine, but only works if all the servers are using the same charset, which in your case is not true.

Let me know if that helps!
David

Ajith... I think you responded on a different question.

You asked about what version of PB we are...

We are currently 32-bit and have been since PB 4. We are about to release a PB 6.5 version of our application.
