Replication character translation error

Sybase Replication is translating a single tic character into the Latin AE symbol. I narrowed this down to replcation and then was stumped. The single tic saves correctly in the Sybase database but the first two insert statements like this failed replication but changed these tics to AEs. Since then I no longer recieve the errors but all tics are automatically changed to the AE characters. Is it possible that replication uses a different ASCII code set than the database?

Sybase 9.0.2 2451
Windows Server 2003 SP1

Please let me know if you need more information.

Thank you!

Suspect you mean Sybase ASA and SQL Remote? (I thought you meant Replication Server until I saw the version numbers...)

I would be checking the character sets used by ASA on both sides and SQL Remote. It definitely could be using a different set.

Yes, that is what I ment, thanks.

Ok, I am showing the server using cp1252 and the database using cp437. I heard a rumor that Sybase is going to phase out cp437 completely but could not find any backup notes on that.

I will try to do a rebuild on this test db with cp1252 and see if that works.

I've not heard anything about character sets being phased out. It seems very unlikely! Sybase is spending more and more effort on internalisation, not less...

But yes, definitely have the character sets agreeing for every moving part here - ASA (source and destination) and SQL Remote should all agree. It shouldn't matter quite so much that they match the server character set but it isn't a bad idea...
