Installation with SQL Server


Luis Ennser (1675) | asked May 28 '10, 2:49 p.m.
We are installing RAM with SQL2005 the documentarion states that we need to create the database with a collation sequence that ends with_BIN2 (for example, Latin1_General_BIN2).

The customer created the database with Latin1_General_CP1_AS.

Will this work? Or will we have problems?

Thx

BIN2?


As I said before, it will not work! It is very specific. We require it
to be BIN2 to enable NLS UTF character sets to work correctly. Without
it characters can get corrupted or will not sort correctly causing
invalid results.

No it won't work. It is specific that it needs to be BIN2.


Rich,

Could you please provide more details why RAM only takes BIN2?
