Hi

Is it possible to use unicde characters in teamcenter modules. For example in the envelop texts or part names and others.

It seems that it's not suported or may be any settings available to activate it.

 

Thanks

Hello,

 

Teamcenter accepts characters (ASCII characters) that are acceptable/legal for database.

Your DBA team can very quickly tell you (NLS settings) the DB character set assigned for your Teamcenter DB instance.

For Teamcenter server, UTF8 character set is generally used to support multi-locale clients.

 

To help us understand your query better, can you share the characters you are attempting to use for object names?

Thanks for your response.

Actually the current collation of database is Latin1_General (According to TC installation guide).

So it would be possible to reinstall database and corporate server with different collation like utf-8; is it true?

ISO-Latin-1 (also called ISO-8859-1) is large enough to cover most latin based language characters (including English language). The choice to use unicode (UTF-8 is one way of encoding 'unicode' standard) is driven by the need to represent characters from more than one language/locale within a system. 

 

In my opinion, you may not have a need to move to UTF-8 if your teamcenter instance supports only one language.

 

Can you share the character you are attempting to type in which Teamcenter seems to prevent?

It seems that just a few collations are supported by team center and there is no Unicode collation in the installation step "Foundation Database".

Any help or comments?

Teamcenter supports unicode UTF8 and you would find that in TEM installation panel. UTF8 should be sufficient (IMHO) to support chinese and arabic.

 

Teamcenter through localisation supports Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese in foundation installation.

Could you please help me to find this feature?

I use tc 9.1 and there is no UTF-8 or unicode in the collations to be selected.

Hello,

 

This is the screen grab I mentioned in my previous post.

UTF8UTF8

I don't have TC9.x at this moment. This screen grab is from TC11.x tem.bat

Do you see utf8 in the TCserver tem.bat for TC9.x?

Unfortunately not. There is no UTF-8.
