    Hi all,

    Is there a way to insert spanish words into the Oracle table - like 'Espaņa'.

    When I try to insert it, it either takes the ASCII counterpart of it or replaces the 'ņ' with a '?'.

    Has anyone done this before or knows a work around for it??

    Shiva.

    First you have to define in the init.ora a character set which supports the Spanish characters. Second you have to set the nls_settings on your client correct, else the characters can/will be converted.
