Q

Changing the language code_set in SQL Server 7.0

Can I change the language code_set in SQL Server 7.0, or is the only way to reinstall it?

You need to reinstall and also any existing database you need to export the data, recreate these and re-import the data. Another option is to restore you existing databases on a temporary server which has been installed with your current code page, reinstall your existing server, create new empty database and import the data into these from your temporary server using DTS.

Another option, upgrade to SQL Server 2000 and save yourself the hassle as you can change these without reinstallation!
