Postby RGLS » Fri Dec 03, 2010 10:18 pm

hi, i have a problem when my sql statement have accented character. Here is a exemple of my problem.
Sql Script :
INSERT INTO TEST(a) VALUES('é')

INSERT INTO TEST(a) VALUES('è')

INSERT INTO TEST(a) VALUES('è')


Sql Package Statement :
INSERT INTO TEST(a) VALUES('�')

INSERT INTO TEST(a) VALUES('�')

INSERT INTO TEST(a) VALUES('�')

After i ran the package i got this characer(\"�\") in my tablem.

Could you help me with this ?

Thanks for your post.

I haven't been able to reproduce this on my machine. It seems that SQL Packager will always create unicode scripts.

It might have something to do with the database collation or the datatype of column [A]. Do you get the correct value if you query the table directly?

Let me know if this doesn't help explain and I'll try and troubleshoot this further.

---Step 1
--Create a table test
CREATE TABLE dbo.SqlPackager
(
id int NOT NULL IDENTITY (1, 1),
comments varchar(50) COLLATE SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS NULL
) ON [PRIMARY]
GO
ALTER TABLE dbo.SqlPackager ADD CONSTRAINT
PK_Table_1 PRIMARY KEY CLUSTERED
(
id
) WITH( STATISTICS_NORECOMPUTE = OFF, IGNORE_DUP_KEY = OFF, ALLOW_ROW_LOCKS = ON, ALLOW_PAGE_LOCKS = ON) ON [PRIMARY]

GO


---Step 2
--This is my Sql script i want package for a Update Database.
--update.sql
INSERT INTO dbo.SqlPackager( comments ) VALUES ( 'été')
INSERT INTO dbo.SqlPackager( comments ) VALUES ( 'élève')
INSERT INTO dbo.SqlPackager( comments ) VALUES ( 'à faire')
INSERT INTO dbo.SqlPackager( comments ) VALUES ( 'summer')
INSERT INTO dbo.SqlPackager( comments ) VALUES ( 'student')
INSERT INTO dbo.SqlPackager( comments ) VALUES ( 'to do')

--When i look into the package.exe for Upgrade database(With no compression)
--i got this:

--This is my Sql script i want package for a Update Database.
--update.sql
INSERT INTO dbo.SqlPackager( comments ) VALUES ( '�t�')
INSERT INTO dbo.SqlPackager( comments ) VALUES ( '�l�ve')
INSERT INTO dbo.SqlPackager( comments ) VALUES ( '� faire')
INSERT INTO dbo.SqlPackager( comments ) VALUES ( 'summer')
INSERT INTO dbo.SqlPackager( comments ) VALUES ( 'student')
INSERT INTO dbo.SqlPackager( comments ) VALUES ( 'to do')



--Step 3 Run the package.

--Step 4.
SELECT * FROM redGate.dbo.SqlPackager

--OUTPUT
1 ?t?
2 ?l?ve
3 ? faire
4 summer
5 student
6 to do

Which version of SQL Packager are you using? I've tried it using 6.0 and the 6.3 patch version, and I'm not encountering the same issue.

Maybe this behaved differently with an older version.

The extract below is from the script SQL Packager generates when I try your steps.

-- Add 6 rows to [dbo].[SqlPackager]
SET IDENTITY_INSERT [dbo].[SqlPackager] ON
INSERT INTO [dbo].[SqlPackager] ([id], [comments]) VALUES (1, 'été')
INSERT INTO [dbo].[SqlPackager] ([id], [comments]) VALUES (2, 'élève')
INSERT INTO [dbo].[SqlPackager] ([id], [comments]) VALUES (3, 'à faire')
INSERT INTO [dbo].[SqlPackager] ([id], [comments]) VALUES (4, 'summer')
INSERT INTO [dbo].[SqlPackager] ([id], [comments]) VALUES (5, 'student')
INSERT INTO [dbo].[SqlPackager] ([id], [comments]) VALUES (6, 'to do')
SET IDENTITY_INSERT [dbo].[SqlPackager] OFF

I've sent you a private email to continue this. I think we might need to get some more information from you to get to the bottom of this.

Hi,

I'm running SQL Packager 6.4.0.8, and it does the same thing.

I'm using the collation : SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS

Ok, I found it out...

In the advanced save options, you have to specify the encoding you save the SQL script to be \"Unicode - Codepage 1200\".

(the \"Advanced Save Options\" can be accessed by the little down arrow (drop down) on right of the \"save\" button in the \"save as\" window)
