During installation of DB2, the country, codepage and
regional settings are established. You can, however, change these
settings after installing DB2. This includes changing regional settings
such as code page, country language (for monetary, date, and numeric
formatting) and time zone. When a new connection to a database is made,
the database manager uses these new values.
You must ensure that you install the DBCS (double-byte character set)
version of DB2 on the corresponding DBCS version of the operating
system. Also, note that DB2 national language support may not produce
the expected results if the country, code page and regional settings are
incorrect for the intended language.
Table 28 shows the languages into which the DB2 messages are translated.
|Note:||The code page values in the table that follows are also used as directory names on DB2 CD-ROMs. For example, a reference to x:\language\win16\install would be x:\EN\win16\install for English.|
