DB Migration - Language Neutral Collation

Jira,

We are testing your application and am about to migrate it to SQL 2008 R2.

Your doco indicates to use a specific collation. You use the term "language neutral". I have never seen that term in any of the MS doco and have been working with SQL DBs for years.

On your migration doco, you indicate an example of one is SQL_Latin1_General_CP437_CI_AI.  Do you have any other SQL collations that would be satisfactory?

Hey Mark,

As long the MS SQL Server collation name contains Latin1_General (neutral language), CI (case insensitive) and AI (Accent Insensitive) you can one whichever you want smile.

Hope it helps.
Thanks and Regards,

Deividi,

Thanks for the information. In the SQL Server world, the term "language neutral" is not used anywhere. wink

That said, we will use SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AI for the JIRA migration to SQL Server 2008 R2.

From your doco, that will work.

Thanks.
