    The specification of the character set is not guaranteed. It simply represents the character set with which the postal codes were successfully imported to the postal table at SAP. You can obtain the valid character set at the address below.
    11. The exact version of an existing catalog can be seen at the start of the file.

    Note: If an existing postal code catalog is to be overwritten with a new version, you must make sure that manually inserted or changed data records are deleted from tables NPLZ and NPEZ before data is imported (remark: these data records have the characteristic value 'H' in field MODKZ). To this end, as of IS-H Release 4.61, RNUPLZ00 offers the option "completely delete old version".
    Manually inserted data records must be inserted again manually in tables NPLZ and NPEZ after the catalog has been imported!
