Final Preparation Steps
Single Code Page and MDMP Systems
Between the preparation of the non-Unicode system and the database export, you need to update the SPUMG results. This is to ensure that data changes which might have happened between the scans and the database export are reflected in the Export Control Table. For details, read the Documentation and Troubleshooting.
The most important step at all is the nametab handling. The Unicode nametabs MUST be created before the database export because otherwise the Unicode system will not run. Read the Documentation and Troubleshooting for details. In addition, SAP Note 932779provides background information about nametabs and Unicode conversions. Do not start the Database Conversion before the nametabs are properly created.
