    Thumbs up

    Hi All,

    When i am trying to use the imp utility to port the data from my production server to test bed i am getting the below error. Please help me what to do now.

    import done in WE8ISO8859P1 character set and US7ASCII NCHAR character set

    import server uses US7ASCII character set (possible charset conversion)

    IMP-00069: Could not convert to environment national character set's handle

    IMP-00000: Import terminated unsuccessfully

    Thankx,
    Sekhar

    Imp will not stop you because of character set conversion. It takes care auotmatically. Thats why i could not understand what is actual problem

    Hi

    In order to cahnge the charcter set of of your database .You need to rebuild the database.use database configuration assistant to create a new database there is a option to change the character set of the DB on its GUI utility.

    If you run import without changing the caharcterset your data will be useless

    Import and characterset conversion will not work if your dump file was made in chartacterset which is subset of characterset you are importing to, I mean US7ASCII is a subset of WE8ISO8859P1, you will be able to import from US7ASCII to WE8ISO8859P1, but you will not be able to import from superset to subset. Do you understand now?

    If you run import from US7ASCII to WE8ISO8859P1 you may lose national characters, it may depend on Oracle version. I had this porblem in 8.1.5, (the same with UTF8)
    Automatic characterset conversion does not work perfect.
