Hello Experts how would you go about finding out if these two  have been set up.


•      Character Set: 1252 Multilanguage
•      Sort Order: Accent-insensitive, case-insensitive

I am installing a new application and these need to be set up before I can move on.   Please help

Usualy the COLLATION name give you the brief description of what you need - for instance:

SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS means

Latin1 - is code page 1252 installed - see link : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/Aa214408
CP1 specifies code page 1252
CI is Case Insensitive
AS is Accent Sensitive

Based on these you would need something like:  SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AI

Latin1_General_CI_AS  is the default collation for Windows U.S. English locale and is that what you see under SQL Server Properties??
Regardless of the difference it looks like you have Accent-Sensitive/Case-Insensitive and not the desired "Accent-insensitive, case-insensitive"


Good luck!
