EasyInput - Logon Language

Post by moderator »

When using EasyInput one can force the logon language by placing the ISO LANGUAGE CODE in the Language cell on the EI_Logon worksheet (e.g. EN, DE, PL, FR, ...).
In modern unicode systems the codepage of the SAP system can be set by the system automatically on the basis of the language. There is an exception however, when the SAP system has the codepage different than standard 1100 and when the password/ username contains codepage specyfic characters not existing in standard 1100: ISO-Latin-1 character set. Then the error: RFC conversion failure, Error while converting a parameter to the correct data type occurs.
In such situation in order to log in to the SAP system the user needs to add SAP CODEPAGE setting on the EI_Logon worksheet.

SAP codepage documentation:
See also SAP Note Number: 1236565 - NW RFC SDK: Logging on with non-ISO-Latin-1 user or password

SAP System Codepage examples (ASCII):
· 1100: ISO-Latin-1 (standard for US/ Western Europe)
· 1401: ISO-Latin-2 (e.g. for Poland)
· 1500: ISO-Latin-5/Cyrillic
· 1600: ISO-Latin-3
· 1610: ISO-Latin-9/Turkish (also alternative for French)
· 1700: ISO-Latin-7/Greek
