Character Set - Code page


Code page is a number identifier for a character set.

The term code page originated from IBM's EBCDIC-based mainframe systems, but many vendors use this term including Microsoft, SAP, and Oracle Corporation.

Vendors often allocate their own code page number to a character encoding, even if it is better known by another name.


For example UTF-8 character encoding has code page:

  • numbers 1208 at IBM,
  • 65001 at Microsoft,
  • 4110 at SAP
