Re: UK characters

From what I can recall...

You must be using a character set that supports the currency symbol in question. The default (I think) is US7ASCII - which is not helpful. Try using something like
WE8ISO8859P1 - standard Western European 8 bit character set (not sure if there's a Euro symbol in there though).


You also need to have the NLS Territory, NLS Language and NLS Characterset all set correctly for a UK environment.

If you can't convert your existing characterset, then you'll need to rebuild the DB.
There's a raft of information in the Globalization (sic) Folder under metalink - have a look at note 190574.1 to get started.

Thanks. Igor., I looked up nls_currency on the metalink, but I can't find a
list of acceptable values. Do you happen
to know where it is located?

Hello:

I'm trying to let our users from UK to enter british pound into the
database. Currently this sigh is being converted to a question mark. I
have tried modifying nls_languate and nls_territory but without success
and ORacle manual is not very helpful. Can someone refer me to an
article that explains this?

thank you
