I don't remember very well but I think it has been changed to
There ware two separate function (one for client and one for server)
however it was better to set server charset using client charset (or a
nearest one). We do not still convert character data from Sybase so it's
better to use the same coding and mssql (7 or newer) use always UCS2
(for metadata) and server encoding (other data).
