    Hello Abelardo:

    I suffered a similar problem with € symbol.

    We changed the Connect Version in our clients, and the € symbol started to cause the -21005 error. As far as I know, the problem is not on the server side, but on the client Side (or at least, in the character conversion between server locale and client locale). Open a session from the client and execute a onstat -g env for this session. You should search for the DB_LOCALE, CLIENT_LOCALE and SERVER_LOCALE and post them here. Maybe this would help us to get a solution.

    Best Regards.
