Brainware for Invoices runs in conjunction with either an SQL or Oracle database server. This database server needs to be in place prior to installation.
Before loading scripts with the SQL Developer, configure the SQL Developer for UTF-16 encoding with the relevant character set. Otherwise, the script either does not convert all characters (Chinese characters and special characters: €, £, ¥, ￥) or, displays extra characters at the beginning of the script in the SQL Developer, which causes the script to fail.
Separate database server scripts are used depending on whether the database type is SQL server or Oracle.
