    Question Character Set

    Hi,

    I want to create a Japanaese database using JA16SJISTILDE characterset. But the enviroment variable NLS_LANG when set to Japanese_Japan.JA16SJISTILDE doesn't allow to login to SQLPlus saying Invalid Characterset (ORA:12705)
    So thinking that this might not a valid Value for NLS_LANG I set it to Japanese_Japan.JA16SJIS and was thus able to get into the SQLPlus now to create the database.

    But now when issue:

    Create Database ...
    ....
    CHARACTER SET JA16SJISTILDE
    NATIONAL CHARACTER SET al16utf16set;

    it again gives the similar error message (ORA-12701)

    I'm using Oracle 9i Release 1 (Oracle9i Enterprise Edition Release 9.0.1.1.1) on Windows 2000.
    I am not able to ascertain why it is not recognising
    JA16SJISTILDE as a valid value both at Database and Enviroment level,
    when its mentioned in the documents

    I have set Japanese Locale settings using Windows Control Panel> Regional Options, so much that the menus etc are now capable of displaying in Japanese. Installation of Oracle also went in Japanese.

    With Regards,
    S K Mittal

    any patch for JA16SJISTTILDE

    Thanks for the useful inputs!!

    I was also thinking that the JA16SJISTTILDE was not available in Release 1. Actually I need this character set for NLS_LANG to import the data into the new database I am able to create in JA16SJIS.

    Since this is confirmed now I'll have to get on on to download the Rease 2, or is there any other way by which I can apply JA16SJISTTILDE as a patch.

    Thanks a ton
