There are two sets of code pages used in windows, ANSI and OEM. ANSI is what is commonly used now, but some data still uses the OEM code pages. When migrating data, this attribute is used to determine whether the OEM data will be translated to ANSI during the migration. For example, migrating passwords with special characters may call for different code pages. Setting this attribute to true will convert the OEM data to ANSI, setting it to false will not.
