    Hello,

    If you go to the transaction SM51, Button "Release Notes" you get information about the kernel, including if it is Unicode or not. For example:

     

    SAP R/3 Kernel              640_REL                                      

    Database Client Library     OCI_920_SHARE                                

    created in                  NT 5.0 2195 Service Pack 4 x86 MS VC++ 13.10 

    created on                  Sep 11 2006 00:00:24                         

    Support Level               0                                            

    Kernel Patch number         147                                          

    Source ID                   0.147                                        

    DBSL Patch No.              142                                          

    <b>ICU Version                 2.6.1 Unicode Version 4.0                    </b>

    UTF8 = Unicode

    WE8DEC, US7ASCII are not unicode.
