Hi all,

Is it a big effort to change the existing odbc driver to support unicode (I need this to access databases with unicode data - chinese, japanse, cyrillic - character sets?

Currently the driver/extention automatically change the data to ansi characterset, and that makes the data unusable as the data cannot be converted from multibytes to just a single byte.

I did try to cast the data as "binary" and that worked, I retrieved the data as-is, no conversion was done, so the unicode data was complete. The problem is that not all sql languages support binary (Impala SQL does not support it), so it's not always possible to cast the data as binary.

So I'm a bit stuck here... :-(

Any help/ideas would be welcome.

Thanks,

I already have seen/read that article, and yes it provides some
workarounds. But it's not solving my problem.
