Database codepage conversion can be a tricky business. Beginning with a general overview of codepages, where they are specified and where conversion is done, we cover also collation orders and their performance impact. Then we discuss the conversion process itself, including pitfalls, where the app vendor stores strings in different codepages, unknown to Db2. This requires special export/load considerations. The audience will learn how to do a successful conversion.
