I would like to know if there is any way of retrieving the default sort order for a database. I have a database on one hand that's already been installed and that gives me the correct character encoding. I have a nother database which I installed with the default sort order and that messes up my (the client's) data.

Also, if I change the sort order on the second server, will anything else be affected other than the sort order and the encoding of the text data? Will any data get lost or otherwise irrepairibly mangled?

Thanks a lot in advance ...
