WE8MSWIN1252 (This is a Western European Standard, single bit characterset)
AL32UTF8 (This is the superset of "WE8MSWIN1252" and multi bit characterset).
If you are using global characters then go for AL32UTF8 (keep in mind it is multibit character set).
FROMCHAR should be US7ASCII
should the FROMCHAR not be US7ASCII

now they plan to use csscan to move from US7ASCII to WE8MSWIN1252
the query is whether to use WE8MSWIN1252 or AL32UTF8For japanese, you can't use WE8MSWIN1252. Win-1252 does not define any japanese characters.
some of the dataset is in non english, french japanese..etc
Also, the recommended database characterset for new installations is AL32UTF8.
I think you should base your decision on Unicode and only if you find strong reasons against it, choose something else.
