Hi ,

I am writing a query which was working before on our database .
But recently the database admin changed something and since then i am facing this prob.

my query is as follows:

delete from dbo.intel_temp;
bulk insert dbo.intel_temp FROM '\\supportpc01\c$\savvas\SO 27-09-2004.txt'


and i am getting following error:

(0 row(s) affected)

Server: Msg 2775, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Code page 737 is not supported by the operating system.
The statement has been terminated.


I have changed my regional settings on my PC to Greek and its default.

But still the same prob.

any suggestions will be highly appreciated.


But still the same prob.code page 737 is for Greek
