Set default Janus character set for region

This subcommand sets a default character set for all Janus ports in the Model 204 region.


JANUS CHARSET [character_set]

character_set An optional 1- through 30-character name for the character set to be used. The default value is iso_1.

Usage notes

  • CHARSET has no effect on the operation of any application in Model 204. The name of the specified character set is simply forwarded to the target server for a Janus Open Client application.
  • Because almost all SQL Server character set names are lowercase, the character set specified after CHARSET will generally be translated to lowercase. For example, specifying CHARSET CP850 will actually request character set cp850 from a target server. If an uppercase or mixed case character set name is required, place a plus sign (+) in front of the character set name. For example to specify character set BIG, enter CHARSET +BIG.
  • The character set specified on a JANUS DEFINEREMOTE command overrides the character set specified on a JANUS DEFINE command, which overrides the character set specified on a JANUS CHARSET command. If the character set name is left blank, the JANUS CHARSET command will display the current character set name.
