    Charater Set

    Anuj ,

    The character set is initially set in the "Create Database" statement,before doing an export make sure your OS env variable for NLS_LANG, you can use the following script to find what character set is set for your database:

    select 'export NLS_LANG="'||char_date.value||'_'
    from v$nls_parameters char_date,
    (select value
    from v$nls_parameters
    where parameter='NLS_ISO_CURRENCY') char_iso_value,
    (select value
    from v$nls_parameters
    where parameter = 'NLS_CHARACTERSET') char_char_value
    where char_date.parameter = 'NLS_DATE_LANGUAGE';

    ALSO NOTE: In order to change Character Set you have to RECREATE DB!!

    WE8ISO8859P15 is WE8ISO8859P1 but supports EURO sign, thatīs just a warning, if you want to avoid it then set your NLS_LANG to WE8ISO8859P1
