In my company all tables are configured to use codepage 243 (= EBCDIC German). Cp243 however doesn't support the euro-sign "€". This causes a problem in one particular table, where the users enter freetexts. Cp1141 was developed out of Cp243 to support the euro-sign. Both codepages are nearly identical. According to our DB2 expert there could be performance problems or that "strange" issues may occur, if we migrate only that particular table to Cp1141 and join it with other tables that are still using Cp243. Is it indeed an all or nothing issue? I really don't feel like changing numerous tables.
