Download data to application server in unicode for SAP 4.6B

Hi experts,

I am now using SAP 4.6B. I need to write a program to download data to application server and the file must be in unicode. Is it possible? If yes, how can I do this?

In SAP 4.7 onwards, I can use

OPEN DATASET xxxx IN TEXT MODE ENCODING DEFAULT.

But in SAP 4.6B, it seems that I can't specify encoding...

you need some unicode codepage on your SAP system

do a translation to this codepage before you write file (in binary format)

on my system:

4100 UCS-2 BE Unicode

4101 UCS-2 LE Unicode

4102 UTF-16BE Unicode

4103 UTF-16LE Unicode

4104 UTF-32BE Unicode

4105 UTF-32LE Unicode

4110 Unicode UTF-8

4120 Unicode UTF-8 pure

LE = little endian, BE = big endian
