RDBPROD: Managing a String That May Contain Accents (Doc ID 277133.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 03, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Rdb Server on OpenVMS - Version 7.1 and later
HP OpenVMS Itanium
HP OpenVMS Alpha

Goal

It is possible for a field to contain accents. It is not easy to search into such fields because it is possible to include or not include the accents when storing the data. For example, take a name stored as "Renée". If you search this field for "Renee" the row with "Renée" will not be found. The same type of problem will exist when trying to sort on this field.
