Ok, I've been confronted by this problem during the week where I'm the only guy not on break on our SQL team.
I got a series of databases that have data concerning clients in Asia,now this week (about 3 months after go live) we get the report the Chinese characters have turned into ?
The source is an IBM DB2 UDB for iSeries IBMDASQL OLE DB Provider,in the preview the characters are shown correctly but they turn into ? as soon as they leave the source.
The fields are string [DT_STR] codepage 1252,here lies the problem,this causes the Chinese characters to be turned into ?.
However when I change it to unicode type,the package errors on the source. Is their any solution for this.
What exactly are you changing when you 'change to Unicode type'?
